12 August, 2016
WASHINGTON: The United States is in contact with Pakistan on reports about Taliban and Daesh alliance in Afghanistan.
Director, Press Office at US Department of State, Elizabeth Trudeau, while briefing the newsmen in Washington on Thursday said that we have been very clear with the highest level of the Pakistani Government that Pakistan must target all groups and added that General Raheel Sharif actually spoke about this very recently.
She further said that Pakistan and the broader region’s stability requires that military threats be addressed in a comprehensive way.
Elizabeth Trudeau said that instability in Afghanistan is not in Pakistan’s interest and will undermine the significant progress that the Pakistan military has made in shutting down terrorist safe havens.
