Pakistan won't give up its principled stand on Kashmir: Asif

Pakistani cricket star Khan urges Trump to talk to Taliban

Khawaja Asif, speaking at a session hosted by Asia Society in NY earlier, had said that Hafiz Saeed and Haqqanis were liabilities for Pakistan.

The Foreign Minister said Pakistan would not oppose US' decision to create an enhanced role for India in Afghanistan, to the extent that it is not related to military or strategic presence.

In a statement, the Indian government said, "PM Narendra Modi met the chief executive of Afghanistan, Dr Abdullah Abdullah, today afternoon".

Saeed has already been classified as a terrorist by the U.S. and UN.

About the recent threatening statement by the Indian Army chief for carrying out "surgical strikes" in Pakistan, Zakria urged the global community to take notice of these threats.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson, Nafees Zakaria on Thursday said that India can not deny use of pellet guns against Kashmiris.

It is pertinent to mention that Pakistan had rebutted Indian claims of carrying out any surgical strikes on its soil a year ago, and said if such incident ever occurred, it would be strongly responded.

Terming terror mastermind Hafiz Saeed as a "liability to nation", Pakistan Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif said the country needs some time to get rid of this liability.

Pakistan's Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa will visit Afghanistan this week to hold discussions with his counterpart in Kabul and the Afghan leadership, including restarting the process of peace talks with the Taliban. Asif also said that Pakistan now feels as if it has been used and discarded by the United States. He roams free in Pakistan and is aggressively pursuing politics in the country.

In response to Washington's statement, Islamabad canceled Acting Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan Alice Wells's planned visit to Pakistan, while the Pakistani Foreign Ministry said that blistering criticism by President Trump was "disappointing".

"With regard to Russian Federation, our interests diverge on many issues, yet we share common interests such as countering transnational terrorism and stabilising Afghanistan".

To a question about Saudi Arabia's interest in joining the China Pakistan Economic Corridor, he said: "CPEC is a flagship project of One-Belt-One-Road and is envisaged to bring prosperity to the region and beyond".

Pakistan has claimed that Indian spy agency, RAW, was involved in instigating terrorism in Pakistan through Afghan based terror outfits. On the security front, the minister said through a relentless military and law enforcement campaign, the terrorists are put on the run.
