State Department threatens Pakistan for providing shelter to militants

25
Washington will take action against Islamabad, if he does not intensify efforts to combat terrorists, reports TASS Statement by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.




According to Pompeo, the United States made it clear that their policies in South and Central Asia have not changed. Washington’s expectations are that the Pakistani authorities will stop providing shelter to terrorists on the country's southern border.

We could not transmit a clearer signal
he said during a press conference.

Therefore, Islamabad "will be brought to justice" if it does not take more "sincere efforts" in this area, the secretary of state added.

He assured journalists that they want everything to be reconciled in Afghanistan, but this cannot be achieved while the Taliban militants (movement is prohibited in the Russian Federation) and other terrorist groups have a refuge.

At the same time, he expressed the hope that Pakistan will fulfill its goal, not waiting for prosecution.

Pompeo also noted that Washington was "encouraged by the high turnout" at the parliamentary elections in Afghanistan, which took place last weekend. In addition, the United States commended the actions of the Afghan security forces aimed at preventing the disruption of the elections. At the same time, he promised to assist the Afghan authorities in the preparation of presidential elections scheduled for April next year.

Earlier, Afghan media reported that in the parliamentary elections, their votes for candidates for the lower house gave more than 4 million voters (a total of 8,8 million people were registered).

    Do you yourself want to go to the tribal zone? There are such thick dushmans sitting there that they themselves can intensify the struggle with whom they want.

      1) The US requires Pakistan to stop providing shelter to militants
      2) US policy in the region has not changed.
      Mutually exclusive statements

      About "without waiting for prosecution" is not a phrase that a responsible politician can afford. This can be said by a policeman to a criminal, and not by a politician of one country in relation to another country.

        So who created the Tribal Zone 35 years ago? And who in general more than 100 years ago laid a time bomb by signing a plan with the Durand line?
        Impudent Saxons, as is ..

        And, again, a very characteristic sign for all hangers-on - Sumerians, Psheks, sprats, etc.
        Impudent Saxons have no allies - there are temporary partners, while it is profitable.

          Logically, Pakistan is the main US ally in the region. Bombing him will be a great stupidity for them.
          But Trump's foreign policy is summed up in one phrase: "consistently quarrel with all allies." Within this concept, bombing is possible.

              Is not a fact. Funny in the news saw:
              Russian and Pakistani servicemen conducted joint exercises. Special forces blocked the "settlement" where bandits allegedly settled in one of the buildings. After clarifying the intelligence, the assault groups began to liquidate. Thanks to well-coordinated actions, it took only 5 minutes to clear the premises.

    An "exclusive" nation can be given refuge to terrorists, while others cannot ... by the way, I already wrote that the United States will be delighted with the "elections" in Afghanistan, this is how the "elections" should be for them to be recognized in the United States ...

    Some kind of clumsy attempt to intervene in Pakistan’s internal affairs. Internal terrorism is Pakistan’s internal affair, and Pakistan seems to be unresponsive to terrorism in Afghanistan, which the States are struggling unsuccessfully. After all, the support of the terrorists comes not from the state of Pakistan, but from the relatives of the Pashtuns who live in both countries.

      Yeah. Pakistan needs to throw them a counter claim so that they can explain about the removal of terrorists from the White Helmets-Al Nusra group from Syria at the request of the United States through Israel and the organization of "caches" for them in democracies.

    Pakistan created the Taliban to fight India. The Americans, on the other hand, turned up by virtue of their stupid, short-sighted policy in Afghanistan. The head needed to be thought and not the fifth point. Now the war in Afghanistan is lost by exceptional warriors - you need to think how to get out. Ask the Taliban - they will prompt. ))))

    All is clear.

    By the way, funny about the outrage. And then whale whales do not shelter those you need! Even if he is a thug and a terrorist three times.

    everybody wants reconciliation in Afghanistan, but this cannot be achieved while the Taliban militants (movement is prohibited in the Russian Federation) and other terrorist groups have a refuge

    Let the Americans do their first initiative and, for starters, stop protecting the cultivation of opium poppy.
