Lahore [Pakistan], September 29 (ANI): Pakistan will provide a list of important leaders of militant groups to the United States delegation that is expected to visit Islamabad in October for dialogue on establishing peace in Afghanistan.

The Pakistan government has prepared its strategy for the Washington-Islamabad dialogue 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.

U.S. delegation will be discussing about the status of Pakistan's military operations against terror sanctuaries operating in Quetta and the terror groups responsible for attacks in Afghanistan, says a Dawn report.

Pakistan Army will also inform about its operations against terrorists to the United States delegation. Pakistan will carry on the operations under its national security policy till the elimination of the last terrorist.

The Pakistan administration will also ask them that United States President Donald Trump's administration should share any available evidence rather than hurling accusations at Pakistan, the Dawn reported.

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. (ANI)
