United States calls for Pakistan to take decisive action against terrorism

He said the United States was engaged in a new era of competition, citing Russian Federation and China as the main rivals that seek to challenge American influence, values and wealth.

Rejecting US concerns about its nuclear weapons, the statement said that Pakistan as a responsible nuclear state has put in place, a highly efficient, robust and centralised command and control mechanism to secure its nuclear assets.

Mandated by the Congress, US President Donald Trump yesterday released his first National Security Strategy 2017, according to which the US has asked Pakistan to intensify its counter-terrorism efforts.

The NSS suggested that it will press Pakistan to intensify its counter-terrorism efforts, since no partnership can survive if a country supports militants and terrorists who target a partner's own service members and officials.

Pakistan today strongly rejected Americas concerns about the terror groups operating from its soil as outlined in the US National Security Strategy, terming them as "unfounded accusations" that belie facts on ground.

It continued that the U.S. interests in the region include countering terrorist threats that impact the security of the United States homeland and its allies.

Conte rails against Chelsea exit rumours
Batshuayi, though, has seen his first-team opportunities seriously limited. "Musonda has a little muscular problem in his groin". I think our task is to try to win the game, to try to reach the semi-final, ' Conte told Tuesday's pre-match press conference.

The new strategy paper once again calls on Pakistan to desist from engaging in "destabilizing behavior" in Afghanistan.

It said, the United States will press Pakistan to intensify its counter-terrorism efforts, since no partnership can survive a country's support for militants and terrorists who target a partner's own service members and officials. But what should be worrying for Islamabad is a clear call to end its "support for militants and terrorists" who target U.S. personnel as well as interests in the region.

The new strategy sees countering terrorist threats that impact the security of the USA homeland and its allies as its interests in the South and Central Asian region that raises the prospect of military and nuclear tensions.

The US also promised to further its trade ties with Pakistan if it helped Washington achieve counterterrorism goals.

The new strategy will continue to promote anti-corruption reform in Afghanistan to increase the legitimacy of its government and reduce the appeal of violent extremist organizations.

It added: "We will deepen our strategic partnership with India and support its leadership role in Indian Ocean security and throughout the broader region". "And we will encourage India to increase its economic assistance in the region", said the statement.
