BabaUmarr But it’s Afghan land and everyone should leave Afghanistan including Turkey …. Turkey should stay out of Afghanistan. Pakistanis can sit talk & live side by side with Afghanis, if Turkey does any thing wrong then Afghanis wont forgive Turks. Turkey Russia China Pakistan Iran must uplift Central Asia together. 🤝❤️🤲
Not a good idea at all I’m sure Turkey will soon find out what happens to the Armies in Afghanistan. Lol Islamic Emirate has already made it clear that any force including that of Turkey will be treated as invaders just like the US & other NATO members. Turkey should not act as a puppet of US. I'm hopeful that ImranKhanPTI will not support this treason by RTErdogan
