When asked about his views on U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's recent statement at a press briefing, Pakistan Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif said, "Pakistan has contributed with both blood and treasure in the fight against terrorism and made significant gains through its effective counter-terrorism operations," adding, "We reject baseless allegations of safe havens."
In response to that, Asif categorically said that Islamabad repeatedly conveyed to the U.S. leadership that it should refrain from making unfounded assertions.
Meanwhile, the U.S. President Donald Trump administration is believed to have shared a list of 20 terrorist groups with Pakistani officials, in its efforts toward helping Islamabad eliminate terrorism.
The visit of the foreign secretary was aimed towards conveying President Trump's message to Pakistan that terrorists, who plan attacks on neighbouring Afghanistan, find safe haven in the country. (ANI)
