Trumph: US Troops needed in Afghanistan to “protect” Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal

, 2:27 PM IST

Republican Donald Trumph have suggested to keep US troops in Afghanistan to protect” nuclear arsenal. It also seems he is sure to give actions to his words if at all he gets elected for the White House.

When asked in a debate on Thursday, Donald said “I think you have to stay in Afghanistan for a while, because of the fact that you are right next to Pakistan, which has nuclear weapons and we have to protect that”. “Nuclear weapons change the game,” said the billionaire campaigner.

Last year, Mr Trump suggested involving India in efforts to denuclearise Pakistan. “You have to get India involved. India’s the check to Pakistan,” he said in a radio address in September.They (India) have their own nukes and have a very powerful army. They seem to be the real check… I think we have to deal very closely with India to deal with it (Pakistan)”

Mr Trump’s suggestion to keep US troops in Afghanistan was one of the few serious references to foreign policy issues at the presidential debate.Most US media outlets described the debate in Detroit, Michigan, as a two-hour long shouting match with no materialistic approach.
