U.S. concerned over future of government in Pakistan: Tillerson

U.S. concerned over future of government in Pakistan: Tillerson

Nevertheless, the major sticking point between the United States and Pakistan remains the question of safe havens for the militants on the Pakistani soil notwithstanding the fact that Pakistan has refuted this at the global forum as well as bilateral interactions with the United States diplomats.

Asif has met with National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who described Pakistan as a partner of the US and critical to the long-term stability of the region.

The Pakistan Foreign Minister is on a three-day official visit to the United States in attempt to rebuild bilateral frayed ties. He insisted Pakistan has wiped out militant hideouts on its soil with little help from the US, which has restricted military assistance to Pakistan, and it can't be blamed for the violence in Afghanistan.

Pakistan seems to follow the good policy of rejecting allegations in regards to safe havens of terrorists on its soil, while reiterating its firm commitment to remain engaged in the process to promote Afghan-led and Afghan owned peace process at the bilateral and multilateral levels.

The minister urged the USA to take note of the gross human rights violations being perpetrated by Indian security forces in held Kashmir. "But since the last three, four years, we are wholeheartedly, single mindedly, we are targeting these terrorists", he added.

"We have offered candid cooperation to Afghanistan during the recent visit of Chief of Army Staff Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa and foreign secretary to Kabul where they had successful and productive meetings with President Ashraf Ghani, the CEO Abdullah and others in the Afghan hierarchy", he told reporters. He did not elaborate on what those steps might be.

"On our part, we have completely wiped out all the hideouts used by terrorists and anti-state elements". "Our western border also meets Iran". In 2015, Pakistan hosted peace talks between the Taliban and the Afghan government that subsequently collapsed. If that happens, nobody should expect restraint from us.

According to State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert, the two leaders talked about their mutual commitment to advancing a multifaceted relationship between the U.S. and Pakistan based on "shared interest" in a secure, prosperous, and democratic Pakistan. Mattis was responding to questions from lawmakers who wanted to know why the administration believes that Pakistan will change its behaviour this time.

"Burden of a 16-year-long war in Afghanistan has now passed to a new Afghanistan", he said, adding "for Pakistan the timeline of managing the fallout of Afghanistan's instability is 30 years and still counting".
