LAHORE: Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif on Monday said that Pakistan had offered the United States a joint operation against the Haqqani network.

“Islamabad has offered US authorities to visit Pakistan with details of the Haqqani network’s safe havens in the country. If they found any activities in the targeted areas, our forces along with the US would destroy them once and for all,” Asif said while in a talk show.

The foreign minister, who recently went to Washington on an official visit and met the top Trump administration, went on to say that Afghan President Ashraf Ghani was also offered the same option during the meeting with Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa in Kabul.

Referring to the US mantra of ‘do more’ despite Pakistan’s great sacrifices in the war against terrorism, Asif said, “If the US administration exerts more pressure on us, friendly countries, including China, Russia, Iran and Turkey, will stand by us.”
