  • Pakistan’s nuclear weapons Presseler Should Worry About Whom

The third round of talks was held in Islamabad when an interagency U.S. delegation visited the Pakistani capital with details of the new U.S. strategy for South Asia announced by President Donald Trump on Aug 21.

"We are committed in the war against terror", he told Tillerson.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has arrived in Islamabad for talks with Pakistan's leadership on a wide range of issues.

United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, ahead of his maiden visit to Pakistan on Tuesday, suggested that he will tell the hosts to cease to provide safe havens to terror groups and terrorists on its soil to better bilateral relations with America. "And we are looking forward to moving ahead with the USA and building a tremendous relationship".

"We are committed to the war against terrorism...and we look forward to moving ahead with the USA and building, as you said, an economic relationship", the Pakistani prime minister said in response to Tillerson's comments.

Ghani said the new South Asia strategy announced by the Trump Administration was a "game changer" as it recommends multi- dimensional condition-based approach for the region. Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif also visited Washington, where he met Secretary Tillerson.




On Monday, during a visit to Kabul, Tillerson urged Pakistan to act against safe havens on its soil.

India's External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj also called on the visiting dignitary.

As one of 16 "Non-Nato Major Allies", Pakistan benefits from billions of dollars in aid and has access to advanced United States military technology banned from other countries.

"There are, we believe, moderate voices among the Taliban, voices that do not want to continue to fight forever, they don't want their children to fight forever", said Tillerson.

The President of Afghanistan Mohammad Ashraf Ghani will hold talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday on promoting stability in the country, infrastructure, and terrorism.

An image released by the State Department of the same meeting featured several details, including a clock and fire alarm, that had been removed from the Afghan image.
