    Pakistan: Imran Khan says meeting Trump would be 'bitter pill'

    In a press briefing, Khan, who has an international reputation as a ladies man and at home is seen more as a religious conservative, said he has been a staunch opponent of Pakistan's participation in the war on terror since it began in 2001 following the 9/11 attacks on the US.

    "Pakistan had nothing to do with it," he said, adding he supported co-operation with the United States but not co- opting Pakistan's military into a ground battle with its own people in the tribal regions that border Afghanistan and where Afghan insurgents hide.
