Pakistan Briefs US Envoy On Counterterrorism Efforts

Pakistan Briefs US Envoy On Counterterrorism Efforts

Wells "acknowledged Pakistan's efforts in eradicating terrorism" and "underlined the need for strengthening intelligence cooperation" to fight terrorism, a statement said.

In an interview with the CBS, Pompeo said "We see the Pakistanis continuing to provide safe harbor, havens inside of Pakistan for terrorists who present risks to the United States of America".

Pakistan has defended its role in the war against terrorism, pointing to the figure of 60,000 deaths and economic losses worth $123 billion suffered since 2001.

Relations between Pakistan and the United States have seen fast deterioration since the start of new year, with the Trump administration taking a tough stance pushing Islamabad to do more in the fight against terrorism.

The statement said these actions "would also contribute towards peace and stability in the entire region".

The opposition members immediately countered the statement on the floor of the House saying that there was no clarity in the statement and it had created further ambiguity.

She also drew the attention of the U.S. delegation to the recent statement by Indian Army chief Gen Bipin Rawat and the ceasefire violations at the Line of Control.

The two sides agreed that all initiatives owned and led by the Afghans for seeking a peaceful solution should be supported by the regional countries.

"India today is a highly militarised and an increasingly belligerent neighbour", he had claimed, and had added that the unrelentingly "hostile" and "anti-Pakistan stance" taken by the current Indian government had reduced drastically space for any advocacy of peace, PTI reported. "The case of Kalbushan Yadhav was proof of his efforts for unrest in Pakistan", he said. No, we don't. But are we committed to more effective relationship with Pakistan?

"Today, our four valiant soldiers embraced martyrdom in unprovoked firing by Indian forces".

He said the nation salutes these martyrs and prays Almighty Allah to grant fortitude to their families.

"In her meetings with Pakistani officials, Ambassador Wells underlined that the United States seeks to move toward a new relationship with Pakistan, based on our mutual interest in realising a stable and prosperous region", said a statement issued by the U.S. embassy. He was of the view that all the institutions and ministries should be on one page when it came to defence and foreign policy.
