Earlier, Khan had said the Taliban were not some military outfit but 'normal civilians'. He remarked that Pakistan, Afghanistan's eastern neighbour, shelters three million Afghan refugees during a TV interview with American network PBS. 

Questioning the United States motive for the Afghan invasion he also said that the US has 'really messed it up in Afghanistan'. 

Due to his continuous support for the Taliban, Imran Khan has earned the moniker 'Taliban Khan' in Pakistan's politics. 

Pakistan has long been accused of assisting Taliban rebels against the Afghan National Security Forces with the military, logistical, financial, and intelligence support (ANSF).
