"Why are we hosting a middle-rank State Department official?" she tweeted, referring to the planned visit of Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs Alice Wells.
Similarly, his own visit to the United States, that was scheduled for last week and that he postponed, was also done because Islamabad is seriously miffed with Trump last week blasting Pakistan for hosting terror safe havens.
His comments were echoed in a news conference held in Moscow by the foreign ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova who likewise criticized the focus on a "military solution to the Afghan issue, including through beefing up foreign military contingents". "There is no harm if the National Assembly adopts the Senate resolution, but they should bring their own resolution", he said.
Asif claimed that over 90 per cent of the attacks in Pakistan were carried out from Afghanistan and also said that Afghan soldiers were selling American arms and ammunition to the Taliban, the report said. "Hence, Pakistan has asked for the postponement of the visit", a ruling party minister told the paper on condition of anonymity.
Successive US administrations have criticised Pakistan for maintaining links with the Taliban and harbouring leading jihadists - like Osama bin Laden. It is expected to send 3,900 additional forces to add to the 12,000 troops the US maintains in the country.
Responding to Nicholson's assertions, Pakistan army chief Gen Qamar Javed, while addressing a four nation meeting on Sunday in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, said that Pakistan had cleared its areas of terrorists. However, it may not be able to sustain a major expansion of assistance programs requiring the deployment of Indian citizens because that would likely require security personnel to protect them and risk direct confrontation. "We do not intend to allow anybody to fight Afghanistan's battle on Pakistan's soil" he said. Deng Xijun reaffirms China's continuing and firm support to Pakistan's commitment and efforts for peace and stability in Afghanistan.
"They don't need hideouts or sanctuaries in Pakistan". The foreign minister endorsed the idea.
Trump had said that a critical part of his South Asia policy was to further develop Americas strategic partnership with India. India with its own ulterior motives against Pakistan is a key sponsor of terrorism in Pakistan while using Afghan and Iranian soil, not to mention a blind eye by USA on the concerns raised by Pakistan repeatedly. So, we don't expect things to change overnight. In fact, many Pakistanis now want their government to say "no more" in response to the United States demands to "do more".
But government sources said Islamabad was still evolving a response to the USA accusations that Pakistan was providing safe havens to militants and prolonging the US' 16-year Afghan war.
They do not, however, anticipate a "rupture" in bilateral ties as Pakistan's ground lines of communication and airspace continue to play a crucial rule in sending supplies to thousands of American and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation troops in Afghanistan. There is good reason to suspect that Osama bin Laden and his mostly Arab companions of al-Qaida, then guests of the Taliban, did not warn their hosts before they carried out that atrocity, since it would clearly lead to a US invasion and the overthrow of the Taliban regime. Pakistan has much to gain from partnering with our effort in Afghanistan.
