According to the Dawn, the new U.S. Congress has removed a provision from the National Defence Authorisation Act 2018, which had connected the two.
The removed provision would have required the U.S. Secretary of Defense to certify that Pakistan has taken steps to "significantly disrupt" the activities of both Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and the Haqqani Network.
This new bill is indicative of the United States desire to train its focus entirely on Afghanistan.
