Pakistan Using India As An Excuse To Pursue Its Afghanistan Policy

Pakistan PM to discuss US strategy on Afghanistan and South Asia in NSC meeting

Pakistan has categorically stated that it will not tolerate any terrorist on its soil and intends to engage constructively with the worldwide community, including the United States, for regional peace and stability, Pakistan's Ambassador to the United States Aizaz Chaudhry said on Wednesday.

"They should not make Pakistan a scapegoat for their failures in Afghanistan", Asif said in an interview to Geo TV late on Tuesday. "We haven't been getting a good deal from them", said the official to Politico.

He expressed this during a current affairs program, Aaj Shehzaib Khanzada kay Sath, adding that Pakistan did not need of U.S. assistance to wage war on terrorist as Pakistani nation has brought the war to a conclusive end on their own.

"The Foreign Minister reiterated Pakistan's perspective and desire for peace and stability in Afghanistan", the statement said. "No country has suffered more than Pakistan from the scourge of terrorism, often perpetrated from outside our borders", the Foreign Office said in a statement.

"We have some leverage", Tillerson told reporters, "in terms of aid, their status as a non-NATO alliance partner - all of that can be put on the table".

The statement expressed disappointment at the USA policy statement adding that "enormous sacrifices have been rendered by the Pakistani nation in this effort".

The Haqqani network, blamed for several deadly attacks against Indian interests in Afghanistan including the 2008 bombing of the Indian mission in Kabul that killed 58 people, has also carried out a number of kidnappings and attacks against U.S. interests in Afghanistan.

Pakistan's powerful military chief, General Qamar Javed Bajwa, met U.S. Ambassador David Hale on Wednesday and told him Pakistan was actively working for peace in Afghanistan.

He said Trump's speech was a rude awakening for Pakistani military and intelligence services, who "keep betraying" the United States while accepting billions in aid from Washington.

China backed Pakistan, urging other nations to "fully recognize" its efforts in fighting terrorism. Only an Afghan-led, Afghan-owned politically negotiated solution can lead to sustainable peace in Afghanistan.

Trump promised to step up military efforts against the Taliban in Afghanistan in a televised addressed on Monday. "That is an open space for the real growth and development".

Trump did not promise to withdraw United States personnel any time soon, saying "conditions on the ground - not arbitrary timetables - will guide our strategy from now on." .
