United States (US) Lieutenant General Austin Miller on Tuesday expressed dissatisfaction over Pakistan’s efforts in countering terrorism.

Miller, Donald Trump’s nominee to lead allied forces in Afghan war told the Senate Armed Services Committee that Pakistan’s actions in the War against terror are contradictory.

He asserted that a major challenge was the sanctuaries in Pakistan that creates hurdles in Afghanistan’s stability.

Miller added “We should have high expectations that Pakistan is part of the solution, not just diplomatically but from a security standpoint as well.”

However, the US general acknowledged Pakistan’s sacrifices and commended its brave army, yet there has been no definite action against Afghan Taliban or Haqqani leaders residing in Pakistan.

Miller, who led the ground assault during the October 1993 “Black Hawk Down” is now the head of Joint Special Operations Command, unit of elite US commando forces conducting counterterror operations in Afghanistan.

The Trump Administration had earlier accused Pakistan of harbouring “agents of chaos” as well as giving them safe havens to wage insurgency against the US-backed government in Kabul.
