In a strong message, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence has told Pakistan's Prime Minister Shahid Khaqani Abbasi that his country "must do more" against Taliban and other terror groups, the White House said on Saturday.
Pakistani media reported that Abbasi arrived in Washington on March 14 for a medical procedure and that he met with USA lawmakers during his visit. "I had the opportunity to meet Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi who is here on an unofficial trip".
United States has once again asked Pakistan to "do more" against terrorist organizations.
Pakistan and the United States are eager to "stay engaged" and carry forward the relationship that has been under strain after President Donald Trump warned Islamabad against providing safe havens to terrorists.
For his part, Abbasi apprised Pence of Pakistan's "sacrifices and successes" in the fight against terrorism and believed his meeting with the vice president was "positive", according to a report by Geo TV. In a tweet, the Pakistani embassy in Washington shared that House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Asia & Pacific Chairman Yoho and Ranking Member Brad Sherman had called on Abbasi.
South Asia observers have noted that Pence sought action by Pakistan against all terrorists operating from safe havens on its territory and not just the Taliban and its affiliate the Haqqani Network. "But we have not seen them proactively take the steps that we expect and know they are capable of". The official said that President Donald Trump was constantly monitoring progress on the South Asia policy and wanted Pakistan to do more than "the bare minimum" it's doing now.
The statement did not indicate the exact time, site, or nature of the talks, but US and Pakistani news media quoting official sources as saying a meeting took place at the vice president's official residence in Washington.
Separately, Sherman also tweeted about having had a "good discussion" with the prime minister on US-Pakistan relations.
"When provided very specific information, they have responded".
