Anticipated dialogue: US to be given list of militant leaders

KARACHI: The government has prepared its strategy for the dialogue with a US delegation expected to visit the country next month and is set to reiterate its demand for action against all groups directly or indirectly involved in fuelling lawlessness and terrorist acts in Pakistan while operating from Afghanistan.

According to sources in the federal capital, Pakistan will provide a list of important leaders of these groups to US authorities.

Aziz calls for increase in Pak-US dialogue

The visiting delegation would be informed about a nexus of Indian intelligence agency RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) with the terrorist groups and provided concrete proof in this regard, the sources said.

The US leaders will be informed that the Pakistan Army’s operations have almost wiped out terrorism from the country and terrorists have no safe place in the country. Pakistan will carry on the operations under its national security policy till the elimination of the last terrorist.

The relevant authorities intend to impress upon the visitors that United States President Donald Trump’s administration should share any available evidence rather than hurling accusations at Pakistan.

US wants to maintain ties with Pakistan

Pakistan will demand a coordinated strategy for severing the bonds of RAW and the terrorist organisations along with diplomatic pressure on Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government to refrain from such activities. Pakistan will use all available options to ensure its security.

The sources said Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, during his meetings on the sidelines of the recent UN General Assembly session, apprised world leaders of the sacrifices rendered by Pakistan in its fight against terrorism and received a positive diplomatic response. US leaders are reported to have conveyed their wish to maintain a strong relationship with Pakistan.
