India’s role in US Afghan policy is unacceptable: Asif tells Tillerson

Washington: Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif has conveyed to the US authorities that India’s role in its new Afghan policy is unacceptable to Pakistan.

According to media sources Khawaja Asif had informed his US counterpart Tillerson that Pakistan had fulfilled its responsibilities in the war on terror, therefore Pakistan’s sacrifices in this regard should be acknowledged.

While denying presence of terrorist hideouts in Pakistan, the foreign minister said: “if anyone has evidence in this connection, do share with us.”

Tillerson had assured that Pakistan’s interests and concerns would be protected in the US policy on South Asia, said Asif, who held a meeting with US Secretary of State at his office on Wednesday morning.

Asif is also scheduled to meet US National Security Adviser Gen H.R. McMaster today (Thursday).
