New Delhi, December 28:
The United States has yet again issued a stern warning to Pakistan to fight terrorism on its soil with seriousness and purposefulness .
In his piece , “ I am proud of our diplomacy ,” published in the New York Times ,the U S Secretary of State Rex Tillerson , while stopping, what he called a “ commitment to stopping Islamist terrorism and extremism “ referred to the Donald Trump administration’s decision to adopt a new South Asia strategy , which focuses on Afghanistan.
He wrote that country ( Afghanistan) cannot become a safe haven for terrorists, as it was in the days before September 11 attacks . He emphasized with a note of caution and doubt. “ Pakistan must contribute by combating terrorist groups on its own soil .”.
The more sarcastic note was in the next sentence : “ Pakistan must contribute by combating terrorist groups on its own soil . We are prepared to partner with Pakistan to defeat terrorist organisations seeking safe havens , but Pakistan must demonstrate its desire to partner with us.”
This statement itself is indicative of the fact that the U S has doubts about the Pakistan’s commitment to fight Islamist terrorism flourishing on its soil under the patronage of its Deep State – ISI .
Pakistan is accused of patronizing, funding and helping the terrorist groups like Jalal-ud-Din Haqanni network, Lashkar-e-Tyaiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad and Taliban offshoots . Pakistan has been using these groups to harass India and Afghanistan .
