Pakistan using India as excuse to pursue Afghan policy

Pakistan using India as excuse to pursue Afghan policy

Speaking on NBC's "Today" show Tuesday, Pence said Trump is offering "a whole new regional strategy for South Asia".

On the plus side, the president backed away from his campaign promise to precipitously withdraw from the conflict, and did not support using private contractors to fight the war, as some of his aides had urged.

More specifically, we would like to see effective and immediate U.S. military efforts to eliminate sanctuaries harboring terrorists and miscreants on the Afghan soil including those responsible for fomenting terror in Pakistan.

The minister also noted that if necessary he would visit the United States to discuss the issue with the country's leadership. Regarding Trump's policy he said, "President Donald Trump's statement and language that he used was totally inappropriate for diplomacy". "We haven't been getting a good deal from them", Anton said.

White House officials have threatened cuts in aid and military support, as well as other measures to force nuclear-armed Pakistan's hand and bring about an end to the 16-year-war. "This was a very shallow statement".

Pakistan supports an Afghan-led, Afghan-owned politically negotiated solution for sustainable peace in Afghanistan, it said.

He insisted that others - the Afghan government, Pakistan, India and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies - step up their own commitment to resolving the 16-year conflict, but he saved his sharpest words for Pakistan.

The meeting is seen as an attempt to quell differences and find ways to continue cooperation between the two longtime allies on Afghanistan in future. Now, cornered, even by the U.S., it's rattled.

US PGA co-leader Kisner comfortable at Quail Hollow
Make a lot of pars and get to a par-5 or one of those short par 4s, I can do my wedge game and get it to 10 or 12 feet. And it was on his mind Friday at Quail Hollow when he was outside the cut line and running out of holes.


In his policy address on Afghanistan and South Asia, Trump had said the pillar of his new strategy was a change in America's approach to Pakistan, considered a long-time ally of Washington.

According to the ISPR statement, the Pakistan Army chief highlighted the importance of peace in Afghanistan for Pakistan and highlighted the efforts made by the country.

"We have been paying Pakistan billions and billions of dollars".

"Pakistan has much to gain from partnering with our effort in Afghanistan (and) much to lose from harboring criminals and terrorists", Trump said in his speech Monday.

He also praised Trump's decision not to impose "arbitrary" deadlines on the American mission in Afghanistan. Donald Trump should behave sensibly and get out of cowboy mentality. With such statements and tactics does the U.S. think they can get away with it?

"It's one thing to be a candidate and talk about what you think", Haley said on CNN's " New Day", the morning after Trump broke with his campaign statements opposing continuing USA involvement in the war-ravaged nation.

Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif, who gave a detailed briefing to the meeting, later told parliament that Pakistan was not involved in any act to destabilise kabul. "We will wait for implementation", he said in a Twitter post. Everyone knew that the U.S. was preparing a new policy yet we did not lobby our cause.
