Pakistan will not accept dictation from United States, says Asif

Pakistan will not accept dictation from United States, says Asif”

"(All these) countries also had reservations about the new USA policy.

United States policy in the region focuses on military presence and not on maintaining peace, former director-general of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence and former director-general of the Pakistan Army's Military Intelligence, Asad Durrani told RT.

Last week, Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Pompeo said that for the strategy to work, the Taliban must be convinced they have no hope of winning militarily in Afghanistan and that means making it impossible for them to cross the rugged Afghan-Pakistani border and hide inside Pakistan.

"We welcome Pakistan and the U.S. to conduct counter-terrorism operations based on mutual respect", Geng added.

Asif also told the Senate that Pakistan is not a superpower but it had gained "unmatched success" in the war against terror. Asif said that the United States has also been told that Afghan ruling elite does not want to end the so-called war against terrorism as they have vested interest and they are making billions of dollars through drug trade, adding terrorism is taking place from across the border in connivance with India.

The minister informed the Senate that Pakistan told the United States delegation that they should allow their policymakers, not military leaders, to chalk out a policy for peace in Afghanistan as the military solution had failed and now a political solution was needed.

About the list given by the US, Asif said that Haqqanis were on top of the list and there was no Pakistani among the wanted militants.

Tillerson had visited Afghanistan, Pakistan and India to discuss US President Donald Trump's new South Asia policy.

He said that Taliban rule arouns 45 percent of Afghanistan and that Pakistan brought Taliban to the table earlier but Mullah Mansoor was killed making them pull out right away.

Asif though hit back by saying that despite not being a fully developed country, Pakistan has achieved a high degree of success in fighting terrorism.

The daily noticed that the stronger language used by Tillerson against Pakistan while visiting Afghanistan and India will definitely rise Islamabad's problems. "Nearly 40% of Afghan territory is now under the direct control of the Taliban".

Khwaja Asif said that Pakistan should not be blamed for the failures in Afghanistan.

"To do that you can not have a safe haven in Pakistan", he said.

"They do not need our territory any more". Beijing has also time and again tripped India on its bid to become an NSG member, by tacitly supporting Pakistan's bid and placing both countries at the same level on the issue of not signing the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty.

"We do not get any military hardware from them [the U.S.]".

India and the U.S. have had discussions on an alternative to China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which, if it takes off, may force Pakistan to choose between China and the U.S. as well as signal a new face-off between the world's two largest economies.

Pakistan is accused of sheltering and maintaining secret ties to the Taliban and the Haqqani network.
