He said Pakistan is ready to work with Afghanistan in all fields including political, economic, trade and transit, security for the progress and prosperity of the two countries.

"Pakistan has taken action against all groups on its soil, and only the remnants of some are left", the Minister Dastgir later told Geo News.

Zakaria said Pakistan also remained concerned at the rise of extremist ideologies and intolerance in the region encouraging social stratification and systematic targeting of minorities. India has protested to China over the Dollars 50 billion CPEC as it traverses through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

Asif said Pakistan could no longer afford to "test" its friends on the issue of terrorism.

The BRICS had called for "comprehensive reform" of the United Nations and the UN Security Council "with a view to making it more representative, effective and efficient, and to increase the representation of the developing countries so that it can adequately respond to global challenges".

However, there was no mention of Pakistan in the joint statement.

At the just concluded ninth BRICS Summit in Xiamen the BRICS leaders also condemned terrorism in all its forms and manifestations wherever committed and by whomsoever.

"The message is uniform from friend and foe alike: Pakistan's tolerance for externally oriented militant groups is no longer acceptable and a serious national effort needs to be made if the country is to remain on the right side of worldwide opinion", the editorial, titled "BRICS Declaration" said. "We reaffirm that those responsible for committing, organising, or supporting terrorist acts must be held accountable".

Asif tacitly referred to action by the Paris-based Financial Action Task Force that forced Pakistan to place LeT founder Hafiz Mohammad Saeed under house arrest.

Beijing said it would not be an appropriate topic to be taken up by the group.

Pakistan's Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif will visit Beijing on Friday to discuss a range of issues with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi, China said on Wednesday.

While the BRICS statement has not named Islamabad directly, numerous groups cited in the declaration find safe haven in the country.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, a three-day conference of selected Pakistani envoys began here to discuss important foreign policy matters. The two sides, the statement added, would review bilateral relations and regional developments, including the situation in Afghanistan.
