Time for Afghanistan to make contributions in war against terror: DG ISPR

He further added that Pakistan will keep supporting all peace initiatives in Afghanistan despite the country's "tendency to scapegoat Pakistan", and said that peace in Afghanistan is "the only way to move towards enduring peace and stability in the region".

Bajwa says he told Vogel that Pakistan wouldn't request the US resume military aid suspended earlier this month following President Donald Trump's harsh New Year's Day tweet in which he said Washington had "foolishly" given Pakistan $33 billion in aid in the last 15 years and in return received "deceit and lies".

Referring to USA accusations, he said the global terror outfit "Al-Qaeda" had not been defeated by the United States, if the country would have been supporting it.

Trump, in a New Year tweet, accused Pakistan of lies and deceit.

He also said Pakistan has the ability to address terrorist threats inside the country.

The US had shared with Pakistan a list wanted terrorists from groups like the Jaish-e-Mohammed, Lashkar-e-Taiba and Harakatul Mujahideen that it believes are operating from its soil to target India and Afghanistan.

India has contributed a great deal in terms of developmental aid to Afghanistan, the Pentagon said today, adding that the United States wants to work with India in the region.

The reps said the actor "never" works for free and demanded the money , with the financiers agreeing to pay as they had no choice. USA Today reported Tuesday that Williams was paid less than $1,000 for the re-shoot, while Wahlberg made $1.5 million.

"We are fully aware of U.S. concerns on activities of Afghan nationals in Pakistan and we are already undertaking multiple actions through Operation Raddul Fasaad to deny any residual capacity to terrorists of all hue and colour for which return of Afghan refugees is an essential prerequisite".

The US has been clear on this issue to Pakistan, Goldstein said. "It was decided that the terrorists will not be allowed to flee to Afghanistan".

Terrorists continue to operate freely inside Pakistan and there is a relationship between terrorist organisations and the establishment, he said.

Since Trump took office, there have been several drone strikes in Pakistan's border region but they have not so far gone deeper into Pakistani territory, though Islamabad believes that is on a menu of punitive actions the US administration is considering.

He stressed effective border management with Afghanistan to curb terrorist movement.

The ISPR DG said that fencing on 2600-km-long border [with Afghanistan] had already begun and there would be significant improvement if the border was managed by the coming year. In this phase, we are fighting an enemy which is not seen. "And the fact that these continued sanctuaries really threaten stability in the region and they continue to fuel the overall terrorism problem that we're facing", the official added.
