Pompeo Seeks 'Decisive Action' Against Terrorists In Pakistan

United States Dismisses Pakistan's Claims, Says we Stand by Our Readout Over Imran-Pompeo Conversation

The State Department also added that the Pompeo urged decisive action by Pakistan against terrorist groups operating on Pakistani soil.

A meeting presided over by Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday discussed inputs from MPAs from the four provinces and decided that the PTI would contest the election with full zeal, reports Dan news. "The secretary had a good call with the new prime minister and we look forward to having a good relationship with them in the future", she told reporters on Thursday.

"The impression that has been given in their press release, which mentions terrorists operating in Pakistan, is in contrast with reality. This shd be immediately corrected", Dr Faisal had tweeted.

The issue becomes even more critical as Mike Pompeo is expected to land in Islamabad during the first week of September, during which high-level meetings will take place, including a meeting with PM Imran Khan.

In an unusual move, Pakistan has asked the USA to "immediately correct" a readout issued by the State Department in which Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was quoted as saying that he asked Pakistan's new prime minister to take "decisive action" against all terrorists operating in the country.

Pakistan's foreign ministry called for the United States to amend its statement, but U.S. State Department said it stands by its account. "We stand ready to provide any humanitarian assistance that may be needed".

After his victory in the July 25 general election, Khan decided not to use palatial Prime Minister House and instead live in a small portion of it that was previously used as the residence by the military secretary to the prime minister.

Throughout his political career, Khan has been an aggressive and outspoken critics of USA drone attacks in Pakistan, especially in the tribal areas that run along the border with neighboring Afghanistan.

While the foreign minister noted that Pompeo's meeting with Khan, who was sworn in as prime minister last week, "will be very important", he also highlighted that Pakistan doesn't "share the same cordial relations with the USA as we had before in the past".

The Pakistan PM's statements came after India made its stance clear that it will not accept aid from other countries for relief work in Kerala.

"We have to understand the needs of Americans in Afghanistan if we want to improve ties with the USA", the new foreign minister said Friday.

"I do not want Pakistan to be placed on the blacklist", he asserted.
