Come to table and assist in fight against terrorism: US to Pakistan

Come to table and assist in fight against terrorism: US to Pakistan”

The US announced on Thursday that it would not deliver military equipment or transfer security-related funds to Pakistan.

To a question regarding repatriation of Afghan refugees, he said that global community including USA should play role in repatriation of refugees from Pakistan. Pakistan is a crucial gateway for United States military supplies destined for USA and other troops fighting a 16-year-old war in neighboring, landlocked Afghanistan.

Senior Pakistani civil, military and intelligence officials on Wednesday briefed ambassadors posted in Islamabad about the country's achievements in the fight against terrorism in a rare move that came against the backdrop of increased United States pressure to do more. The senior Trump administration official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Washington hoped that the aid suspension would be enough to communicate its concern to Islamabad. "We are considering many different things, not just the (financial) assistance issue", the official said.

The US on Wednesday expressed hope that Pakistan would "come to the table" and demonstrate willingness to "aggressively" confront terrorist groups that operate from its territory, amid reports that Islamabad has suspended its military and intelligence cooperation with America, reports PTI.

He had also claimed that the "United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools".

Trump has called Pakistan a safe haven for terrorists.

Except India, all ambassadors and heads of missions stationed in the federal capital were invited at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to apprise them about Pakistan's enormous sacrifices in the anti-terror fight as well as the threat posed by external elements - including Indian secret services. "We believe we owe it to the Americans in harms' way in Afghanistan".

The FO said the diplomats were also shown evidence of an Indian campaign of "unprecedented ceasefire violations, provocations and insinuations including terrorism in the form of IED attacks against innocent civilians on the Pakistan side of the Line of Control and the Working Boundary". Mattis traveled to Pakistan last month.

Defense experts think the USA allegations and halt to military aid have forced the Pakistani government to use its leverage as it has this option, in view of the growing US pressure and its use of the blame game.

The United States has also said some of the frozen aid could be released on a case-by-case basis, and none of it will be spent elsewhere - leaving the door open to full reconciliation.

The United States says it has not been officially notified that Pakistan has suspended military or intelligence cooperation with Washington.

But statements from senior US officials indicate that despite these limitations, the administration is serious in its stance that Pakistan needs to change its behavior.

In a Sunday interview with CBS's Face the Nation, CIA Director Mike Pompeo said "the president has made very clear that he needs Pakistan to cease being a safe haven for terrorists that threaten the United States of America. End". "And it would not be easy".
