The day before, the US president said during a meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan that the US could wipe off Afghanistan in a week, but he didn't want to kill 10 million people, APA reports citing Sputnik.

The Afgan authorities said Tuesday that they would seek clarification from the US on Trump's words about "wiping out Afghanistan".

"The Afghan nation has not and will never allow any foreign power to determine its fate," Afghanistan's presidential palace said in a statement.

On Monday, Donald Trump held a meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan at the White House to discuss relations between the two countries that have deteriorated over the conflict in Afghanistan.

Washington has repeatedly stressed that it would suspend aid to Pakistan if the latter fails to fight those terrorists that have strongholds on the Pakistani soil.
