Security, intelligence cooperation with US non-existent, reiterates defence minister

Pakistan also said the situation on LoC has been deteriorating due to use of heavy weapons by India

"These mindsets, Akbaruddin declared, "need to change", Lodhi said that Pakistan was against terrorism, is itself a victim".

Indian Ambassador to the UN Syed Akbaruddin told the Security Council it is India's vision that Afghanistan regain its place and New Delhi remain committed to work closely with its regional and worldwide partners to bring peace, security, stability and prosperity in Afghanistan.

In a forceful rebuttal of US accusation of terrorist "safe havens" on Pakistan's soil, Ambassador Maleeha Lodhi told the UN Security Council Friday that envisioning that these sanctuaries lie outside Afghanistan need a reality check. Jadhav was captured by Pakistan in 2016 and was sentenced to death by a military court-martial a year ago.

The US has conveyed to Pakistan that the military training component of the aid will continue despite suspension of the security assistance package, media reports said on Thursday, January 18.

US Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan was speaking at a ministerial meeting of the Security Council at the United Nations headquarters in Afghanistan.

"This is why Pakistan should join our efforts to bring a resolution to the conflict, also as spelled out in our South Asia strategy", Sullivan said.


Afghanistan's Deputy Foreign Minister Hekmat Khalil Karzai echoed this, saying Afghan Special Forces had carried out more than 2,000 operations in the past 10 months, causing major losses for militants and foreign terrorist fighters.

But Lodhi continued to be in denial.

Pakistan's U.N. Ambassador Maleeha Lodi countered that Afghanistan and its partners, especially the US, need to address "challenges inside Afghanistan rather than shift the onus for ending the conflict onto others".

Afghanistan needed to address the challenges inside the country rather than shifting the onus for ending the conflict to others, she alleged. "Those who imagine sanctuaries outside (Afghanistan) need a reality check", she added.

Pakistan is trying to maintain a balance in its relationship with the U.S. and the government has made it clear that Islamabad can live without Washington's aid but will not compromise on national integrity, Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif has said.

It is good to note that during the meeting, Pakistan's positive role in several peace initiatives has been duly appreciated and the two sides have agreed that all initiatives owned and led by the Afghans for seeking a peaceful solution should be supported by all regional countries.
