Pakistan PM tells Tillerson it has 'produced results' in fighting terrorism

Tillerson said the message to Pakistan was: "Here's what we need for Pakistan to do. We are going to chart our course consistent with what Pakistan not just says they do but what they actually do", Tillerson said.

The foreign minister was referring to allegations levelled against the country on harbouring terrorists. About India's role in Afghanistan, he said that Pakistan side conveyed that Indian role has never been of a facilitator but of a spoiler, adding that Pakistan has demanded a limited role of India in Afghanistan.

"We have fought away the elements that were the cause of drone strikes in Pakistan".

While the secretary of state reportedly hailed Pakistan for its ongoing onslaught on militants in the restive tribal region along the Afghan border, he also asked for a further push, especially against the Haqqani network, he said. "Nearly 40 per cent of Afghan territory is now under the direct control of the Taliban", the Foreign Minister added.

Arsenal defeated Everton 5-2 over the weekend and sit in fifth place on the league table with five wins in nine matches. And six minutes into extra-time Nketiah got his second goal as he headed in from a corner to put Arsenal 2-1 ahead.

"We would be sent a list [of terrorists]", he said. He added the list provided to the Pakistani authorities has Haqqani on the top. "We are concerned with the role United States is giving to India in the region". The foreign minister reiterated his earlier statement in which he had said the United States can not succeed in Afghanistan without Pakistan's help.

Elaborating further, Asif said a military solution the Afghan problem had failed and the issue can be resolved politically through dialogue and Pakistan would play its due role in this regard. He added that the incumbent government did not compromise on national interest as former military ruler Pervez Musharraf did and neither were orders taken [from US].

Talking about Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's recent visit to Islamabad, he claimed that the U.S. side admitted that Pakistan had two troubled borders and the South Asia Strategy would address these issues.

The official was responding to questions on defence relationship and India's quest for high-tech defence equipments and technologies from the United States as part of its long overdue armed forces' modernisation drive running into several hundred billions of dollars over the next decade. We also consulted Saudi Arabia on the new USA policy.

He further briefed the visiting envoy during the meeting on efforts taken by Pakistan to control cross-border attacks and asked the U.S. to invest in fencing the porous border from the Afghan side.

Noting that he had a very comprehensive discussion on economic and security links with Modi, Doval and Swaraj, Tillerson said it is essential that the two democracies work together to address the challenges facing both of them.

Washington has always been accusing Islamabad of providing safe havens to Haqqani network - a militant group blamed for numerous attacks on the USA and Afghan forces in neighboring Afghanistan, including its capital Kabul in recent years.
