Pakistan apprises US to address concerns to move forward: FO

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has apprised the United States about its serious concerns which need to be addressed for moving forward, according to Radio Pakistan. 

Talking to a private news channel, Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal said that there is a need to find common ground in diplomacy, for resolving the issues.

He said that Pakistan is facing serious problems from the elements carrying out attacking from Afghanistan’s soil.

The spokesperson said Pakistan has also apprised the US to help resolve the matter of Afghan refugees.

Tensions between Pakistan and the US have escalated US’ complaints that Pakistan is giving shelter to terrorists that target American troops in Afghanistan.

A security aid of $2billion to Pakistan was suspended by Trump’s administration last week over these accusations.  On Friday, Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa told US Central Command Chief General Joseph Votel during a telephone call that Pakistan “felt betrayed” by criticism over its efforts in the war on terror.

He also said the US is not planning any action inside Pakistan but is seeking cooperation to recover terrorists who, according to the US view, are using Pakistan’s soil against Kabul.

General Bajwa maintained that Pakistan, General is also strengthening border controls unilaterally but if Afghanistan genuinely feels affected by Pakistan, bilateral border management must be Kabul’s top priority as well.
