'Come to the table' and 'aggressively' confront terror, United States tells Pak

The move came after tensions between the US and Pakistan had risen after President Donald Trump accused the South Asian country of harboring militants and moved to withhold American aid from Islamabad.

Sufi Mohammad will be freed and the paperwork for his release has already been processed, defense lawyer Fida Gul recently said.

Pakistan's Foreign Ministry said the suspension of aid is "counterproductive".

Mohammad, who was put behind bars in 2009, is also known as the father-in-law of Mullah Fazlullah, the leader of the Taliban offshoot in Pakistan.

The US has been clear on this issue to Pakistan, Goldstein said. National Security Committee in its emergent meeting under chairmanship of PM Abbasi in Islamabad has reviewed President Trump's latest tirade against Pakistan and despite its being quite provocative has quite wisely decided not to react to this in haste at all.

Pakistan pushed back, saying the USA needs to show more appreciation after Islamabad has fought terrorism "largely from its own resources" which it said cost over $120 billion in 15 years. The capture or killing of all major terrorist figures in the world on Pakistani soil, from Osama bin Laden to Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, also gave lie to its claim of not being a safe haven, recalling similar Pakistani falsehoods about not being a nuclear proliferator, a lie that previous United States administrations winked at and eventually forgave. "No more!" the president added.

Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry, Pakistan's ambassador to Washington, accused the Trump administration of ignoring the sacrifices made by Pakistan in the war on terror.

Dastagir underscored that without a continuous working level dialogue, no high level interactions could be fruitful and dialogue has to be kept open as long as the United States is fighting the war in Afghanistan. "For the past four years, we have been clearing the debris..."

"We consider them (terror groups) to be destabilizing the region and also targeting USA personnel".

The US has conveyed "specific and concrete" steps to Pakistan that it could take to eliminate terror networks on its soil without any distinction, a Pentagon official said today. "The U.S. will suspend that kind of security assistance to Pakistan", she said.

The United States has long blamed the militant safehavens in Pakistan for prolonging the war in Afghanistan, giving insurgents, including from the Haqqani network, a place to plot attacks and rebuild its forces.

"We have been the victim of terrorist attacks and how can we tolerate the presence of militants on our soil?" he said to the Associated Press over the weekend.
