    US hopes Pakistan will partner in safeguarding region

    The United States (US) on Friday expressed hope that Pakistan will be a partner in safeguarding the region and would “do more” to uphold regional peace in South Asia.

    The statement was passed by Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs Dana White during the regular briefing held at the Pentagon.

    Referring to the security situation in Afghanistan, White said Pakistan had been a victim of terrorism and alleged that the Pakistan and Afghanistan have also “sponsored terrorism”.




    The US claim has been refuted multiple times by the country’s top military and civil hierarchy. Pakistan, over the years, has carried out comprehensive counter-insurgency operations in the tribal areas, once a hotbed for militancy, and has been successful in restoring the writ of the state and eliminating terrorist safe havens on Pakistani soil.

    The Pentagon spokesman further said that Pakistan can do more with respect to the security of Afghanistan.

    Pakistan thinks US leaders are fools, only gave us ‘lies and deceit’: Donald Trump

    When asked regarding deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s statements regarding the 26/11 Mumbai attacks, White said it is an “inflection point” for the country. She reiterated that the US expects more from Pakistan and hopes it will play a major role in maintaining peace.

    On January 1, US President Donald Trump said that the US ‘foolishly’ gave aid to Pakistan over the course of 15 years but Islamabad remained deceitful by providing safe havens to ‘terrorists’ from Afghanistan.

    “The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies and deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!,” Trump said in a late-night tweet.

    In December, the Pakistan Army while rejecting the Trump administration’s pressure to do more in the fight against terrorism, insisted that Pakistan had done enough and could not do more for anyone.

    Pakistan has done enough for everyone, will not do more: DG ISPR

    In what appeared to be a policy decision, the unusually candid statement – coming from Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor, the chief military spokesperson – suggested that Pakistan would not accept any further US demands.

    Following the statement by the US president, Pakistan’s military aid was also suspended.

    No, the indians are your partner's that you choose just short of importing cow juice from them.

    Policy coming out of that country has no head or tail.

    MEANS

    US WANTS PAKISTAN to comply to it's foreign policy and maintain the world order as it is.
    US does not want any oxygen going to China, Russia or Iran.
    Should Pakistan fail to comply with US, then there will be consequences.

    Why does US hope only? Why not use its superpowers to bent Pakistan into doing what it wishes? Oh wait it has already tried that. Result Zero.
    As for the self reflection! the only self reflection we need is how a person like Nawaz became our PM in the first place? His place is adyala Jail and not premiership.

    Bro,

    What do you think Pakistan has been doing since 2001? One has to be blind and mute to not see the obvious.

    I agree with this.
