Just hours after USA defense secretary James Mattis said the U.S. was prepared to give Pakistan one more try, USA secretary of state Rex Tillerson met Pakistan foreign minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif today. In terms of them-, we want their government to be stable. Foreign Office spokesman Nafees Zakaria said that US General Joseph Dunford's allegations that the notorious spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (IS) has ties with militant groups is false.

Pakistan's relation with the United States is "extraordinarily important", he said.

"It is not just about Afghanistan".

Mattis told the committee that the United States would try "one more time" to work with Pakistan on the Afghanistan front before President Donald Trump turned to "other options" to address Islamabad's alleged support for militant groups. We want it to be peaceful.

Responding to another question, Zakaria said Pakistan believes that India is trying to sabotage its economic activity and particularly the China Pakistan Economic Corridor by fomenting terrorism on its soil.

He added: "So, we think there is opportunity to strengthen that relationship".

"The US government and army can not make Pakistan a scapegoat for its failures in Afghanistan", foreign office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said, the Dawn newspaper reported.

He said the LoC violations by India are not only aimed at diverting the world attention from brutalities in Kashmir but also Pakistan's action against Indian terrorist maneuvers. He will return to NY in the evening.

In his strategy, Trump had named Pakistan for continued presence of safe havens within its territory and called for a tougher approach against Islamabad.

The foreign minister also met Secretary of States Rex Tillerson on Tuesday in Washington. Mr Asif, who is visiting Washington at Secretary Tillerson's invitation, said that Pakistan and the United States shared a common desire for peace and stability in Afghanistan and the region at large, the embassy's statement said.

Mansour had been traveling with a Pakistani passport and identity card, infuriating the USA and Afghanistan, which said this was proof of the ease with which Taliban fighters were traveling throughout Pakistan.

Pakistan's Ambassador to US Aizaz Chaudhry accompanied Foreign Minister Asif during the meeting.

The embassy said that Secretary Tillerson had acknowledged and appreciated the sacrifices rendered by the people and armed forces of Pakistan in the struggle against terrorism.
