Terrorists attack Pakistan's border areas from Afghanistan, claims Pak PM

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said on Saturday that unfortunately public mandate was not being recognised despite knowing the fact that the country could not progress without democracy.

He added: "Nobody has fought a bigger war on terror than we have, with our own resources".

In a recent interview with Arab News, the prime minister said that the world was recognising Pakistan's efforts when it came to fighting the war on terror.

The prime minister said Pakistan and Azerbaijan traditionally enjoyed close, cordial relations marked by trust and understanding.

"We have major United States weapons systems in our military, but we've also diversified (our arsenal). Recently, for the first time we inducted Russian attack helicopters" he said.

"We don't believe that injecting India into the Pakistan-US relationship will help resolve anything, especially in Afghanistan, where we don't see any role for India".

In a meeting with the Ambassador of Azerbaijan Ali Alizada at the PM Office in Islamabad, the prime minister said both Pakistan and Azerbaijan needed early conclusion of agreements on preferential tariff and trade, investment, energy and other areas to attain optimum level of bilateral economic cooperation.

"We're partners in the war on terror, and that's what we emphasized. We emphasised to everybody we met (at the UNGA) that nobody wants peace in Afghanistan more than Pakistan".

In the meantime, senior USA officials are expected to visit Islamabad at the end of this month and earlier next month amid reports the officials will deliver tough message by President Donald Trump to the Pakistani officials regarding the circumstances surrounding the fight against terrorism.

Khaqan Abbasi said that despite fiscal deficit, Pakistan would not go to the International Monetary Fund for loans.
