US Assured Pakistan Of 'No Indian Military Role In Afghanistan'

Pakistan eyes Russia China as US relations sour

Top military leadership met on Tuesday to discuss internal and regional security developments in a Corps Commanders Conference in Rawalpindi, chaired by Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa.

The Pentagon said it would not resume payments until the defence secretary could certify that Islamabad had taken sufficient action against the Haqqani network and other militants who cross into Afghanistan from alleged sanctuaries in Pakistan.

"We have made every effort possible, during the time I was there, to convince Pakistan to stop it".

A day before the Mattis arrived in Islamabad, Central Intelligence Agency Director Mike Pompeo had warned Pakistan that if it does not eliminate the alleged safe havens inside its territory, the U.S. would do "everything we can" to destroy them.

Pakistan has consistently rejected claims it supports Taliban-allied forces, insisting it maintains contacts with insurgents only as a means to bring them to the table for peace talks.

Talking about Pakistan's present state of relations with the USA, he said "the U.S. needs to see our position through the prism of bilateral relations and not through the prism of Afghanistan".

Pakistani officials have pushed back on the U.S. accusations and say they have done a great deal to help the USA in tracking down militants.

Mattis recognised Pakistan's sacrifices in the war against terrorism.

A statement released later on Monday from Abbasi's office echoed the term "common ground", and said Mattis had emphasised he was "keenly aware" of the thousands of lives Pakistan has lost in its long battle with militancy.

He explained how the Trump administration would deal with the situation if Pakistan turned down Washington's request to destroy safe havens. "We are not putting forward any demands to Pakistan, but we want to work together", the report said.

"We would like to have a good relationship with the Indians".

The officials have reportedly offered the support during a meeting with the US Secretary of Defense James Mattis during his visit to Islamabad.

The remarks triggered a series of high-level diplomatic meetings in the United States and Pakistan, but Islamabad has given few signs of concessions.
