Responding to a question on US President Donald Trump's letter to Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan seeking his support in maintaining peace in Afghanistan, US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis said: "We're looking for every responsible nation to support peace in the sub-continent and across this war in Afghanistan that's gone on now for 40 years."

"It's time for everyone to get on board, support the United Nations; support Prime Minister Modi's, (Afghan) President (Ashraf) Ghani and all those who are trying to maintain peace and make for a better world here," he told a news conference at the Pantagon on Monday.

"We are on that track," he said. "We'll do our best to protect the Afghan people."
