Pakistan Mocks US Military Mission in Afghanistan

Pakistan must increase anti-terror effort Top US envoy

Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif on Wednesday told senators that Pakistan had pointed out the failure of the American forces in Afghanistan to US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, while asserting that Islamabad will cooperate with Washington in the war against terrorism, but without compromising on its sovereignty. He said during the meeting, we have clarified the visiting dignitaries that Pakistan would not get involved in any kind of proxy war but would continue to play its role for peace and security in the region.

"We have told them that there are a number of influential players in the region ─ including China, Turkey and Russian Federation ─ who might not have good relations with America but hold a stake in the Afghan dispute", the minister told the Senate on Pakistan's view on Afghanistan, the Dawn said. [All these] countries also had reservations about the new United States policy.

Dawn, a prominent Pakistani newspaper, in its editorial published on Thursday said, "What is hard to gauge is how far the USA is willing to go on both sides of the cooperate-or-else message: how much pressure is the United States willing to exert on Pakistan and what kind of beneficial cooperation is the U.S. willing to offer Pakistan?"

On Wednesday, Asif briefed the lower house parliament on talks with the US delegation, describing them as "frank" and held in a "cordial" atmosphere without an exchange of allegations.

"We believe that the global community should recognise the efforts made by Pakistan in counter-terrorism", Geng said.

The US wants Pakistan to establish and maintain a military presence in Afghanistan but will not pay for the cost of such an expedition, the former chief of Pakistan's intelligence service has told RT following a visit to the region by the US Secretary of State. "We are not like in the past when we were their proxy", Asif said.

According to a report in the Hindustan Times, which broke the story, Tillerson's discussions on the BRI centred around India and the United States "joining hands in providing a rule-based and transparent funding alternative" among countries that had signed up to the Chinese BRI. "Their failures over the past 16 years is before them", Asif added.

Khawaja Asif said that Taliban and ISIS control nearly 45 percent area of Afghanistan where they have shadow governors, which is enough for them to plan and execute terrorist activities there and that they do not need Pakistani territory of it. The US should ask them to play a role in resolving Afghan issue instead of demanding Pakistan of "doing more".

During his speech, Asif said Pakistan is not a superpower but is a nation that has sacrificed its people during the fight against terrorism. "Nearly 40 per cent of Afghan territory is now under the direct control of the Taliban", the Foreign Minister added.

Tillerson made his inaugural visit to Pakistan after Trump accused the country of providing "safe havens" to the terrorists.
