The results of a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan indicated that views in Pakistan are divided between those believing that American forces will leave Afghanistan soon (25%) and those believing they will leave in a few years  (29%).


In a survey a nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces were asked the following question: “Do you believe American forces will leave Afghanistan soon, after some years or never leave Afghanistan?” Mixed Views were captured in response to this question. 25% of respondents believed that American forces will soon leave Afghanistan, 29% responded that American forces will leave in a few years and 20% responded that they don’t believe American forces will ever leave Afghanistan. 26% did not know and/or chose not to respond.

There are significant regional differences. In the Northern Province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwah, 44% believe that American forces will leave soon, whereas in Southern province of Sindh only 13% hold this view.
