Pakistan gives Tillerson frosty welcome after U.S. warns over Taliban havens

Pakistan gives Tillerson frosty welcome after U.S. warns over Taliban havens”

Sources said that trade, security, and regional issues are the main topics of discussion can be few important topics to be discussed in the delegation level talks.

At the outset of the meeting, the Prime Minister said that Pakistan is committed to the eradication of terrorism from the country.

"To do that you can not have a safe haven in Pakistan", he said.

The Secretary of State's visit comes a day after he made a policy speeh on America's growing strategic relations with India and Trump's move to offer India a bigger say in war-torn Afghanistan. But he added that the USA had low expectations.

It is imperative at the end that we are denying safe haven to any terrorist organizations or any extremists to any part of this world, "Tillerson said".

Tillerson, who is on a tour to regional countries, is the first high-ranking American official to travel to Islamabad after President Donald Trump unveiled his strategy for Afghanistan and South Asia in August. But Islamabad claims it has cleared out all militant safe havens in previously lawless tribal areas bordering Afghanistan through a military operation. Last week, he called for stronger economic and military ties between India and the United States.

In September, India worked with Afghanistan and identified priorities and projects where Kabul needed New Delhi's assistance.

Secretary Tillerson's Afghanistan trip was kept a secret due to security concerns, especially after an attack last month on Kabul airport during a visit by U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis.

On Monday, during a short visit to Afghanistan, Tillerson said he meant to make clear that Pakistan's relationship with the United States will suffer if Pakistan does not do more to undermine the support the Taliban and other groups receive in Pakistan.

The apparent adjustment of the photo-which a photo expert says still showed a cable that would've powered the clock and fire alarm-might have been an attempt to hide the meeting's location, or to "project strength and advance a positive narrative about the country's security", notes Fox News.

President Ghani will also meet with his Indian counterpart, President Kovind.
