KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Reacting to US President Donald Trump’s remarks, Senate chairman Fazal Hadi Muslimyar on Mondy said no power on earth had been able to wipe out Afghanistaninfo-icon.

Trump’s remarks sparked anger among lawmakers and Muslimyar strongly condemned his statement.

Earlier President Ashraf Ghani said that the United States should clarify remarks President Trump made about Afghanistan, including a claim he could easily win the war but didn't “want to kill 10 million people”.

The US leader made several surprising statements on Monday alongside Pakistaninfo-icon Prime Minister Imran Khan at the White House, including that he had plans for a quick end to the Afghan conflict, but which would wipe the country “off the face of the Earth”.

Afghanistan “would be gone. It would be over in literally, in 10 days,” Trump said, adding, “I don't want to go that route” and that he didn't want to kill millions.

The Senate chairman said the people of Afghanistan would stand against those who violated their country’s sovereignty.

Muslimyar accused Trump of spreading distrust and harming unity among Muslim countries as his policy.

He said Trump’s remarks were not only an insult to the people of Afghanistan but a disgrace to the US.

“Afghanistan is a country which is called the graveyard of empires and the defeat of British and Soviets should be remembered,” he said.

Lawmaker Nabia Mustafazada said Trump’s irresponsible remarks surprised everyone, asking the US president to refrain from such statement as the people of Afghanistan were not reboots but there were humans.

Another lawmaker Mohammad Rahim Hasanyar said: “The US is perusing more divisions in Afghanistan not a political settlement. It is not important for the US who is being killed in this war.”
