United State Secretary Mike Pompeo said that they expect to get a scope to reform the international relationship with Pakistan as the upshot of the Islamabad trip and meeting with new Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan.
On his trip of South Asia, Mr Pompeo declared that the high profile US ambassador named Zalmay Khalilzad would play a new role in leading peace endeavour in Afghanistan.
Pompeo’s pacifying assertion towards the South Asian Giant comes after the confirmation of the cancellation of $300 million military aid by Washington for the lack of ‘decisive initiatives’ to support the American strategy in the fragmentary region.
The top diplomat of United Nations as well as former CIA director, said, “ it was time to turn the page.”
He said, “ So first stop -Pakistan. The new leader there wanted to get out there at the beginning of his time in an effort to reset the relationship between the two countries.”
Mike Pompeo joined with the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joe Dunford and added, “ There are a lot of challenges between our two nations for sure but we are hopeful that with the new leadership that we can find common ground and we can begin to work on some of our shared problems together.”
Pentagon officials strictly accused Pakistan of ignoring the issue of taking of decisive initiatives and even making a convenient atmosphere for the collaboration of terror groups such as Haqqani Network and Afghan Taliban who frequently attacks Afghanistan from the safe shelter of Pakistan and the border between both countries.
According to the belief of White House, the Inter-Services Intelligence agency of Pakistan and other military contingents diversely helped Taliban providing the weapon resource for few subjective reasons and also to converse the rising Indian influence in Afghanistan.
