BRUSSELS, Nov 10 (SABAH): US Army General and Commander of the NATO-led coalition forces in Afghanistan, John Nicholson, has said that there has been no change in Pakistan’s behaviour and no increased cooperation on terrorist safe havens.
“No, I haven’t seen any change yet in their behaviour,” Nicholson said in a media talk after a meeting of the NATO defence ministers in Brussels, reported the US TV channel “CNN”.
“You’ve heard the public statements from President Trump, from (Defence Secretary James) Mattis, from (Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Gen. Joseph Dunford) from (Secretary of State Rex) Tillerson, so we are engaging at the very highest levels with the Pakistanis to work together with them against these terrorists that are undermining the stability of the entire region,” Nicholson added.
“Pakistan has fought hard and suffered heavily against those terrorists focused on its government and now we are asking them to focus on the terrorists that are attacking Afghanistan and attacking the coalition,”
“The United States has been very clear about the direction we want to go and we hope to see some change in the coming weeks and months.
