Terrorists must surrender or face elimination warns Afghan President GhaniMore

Pakistan's swift action has won praise from Trump and other American officials.

"We are committed in the war against terror", he told Tillerson.

Ghani said the new USA strategy brought a positive change in the region and added, "all stakeholders should carry out their responsibilities sincerely", according to the statement from the presidential palace.

"The secretary says he's also pushing Pakistan to deny safe haven to the Taliban and other terrorist groups", NPR's Michele Kelemen, who's traveling with Tillerson, tells our Newscast unit.

Relations between India and Pakistan, nearly always on a rollercoaster in their 70-year history of independence from the British, seem to be in a downward spiral for the past two years. "And we are looking forward to moving ahead with the USA and building a tremendous relationship".

Ghani said the new South Asia strategy announced by the Trump Administration was a "game changer" as it recommends multi- dimensional condition-based approach for the region.

Swansea City 0-2 Manchester United
United should have had a third when Nordfeldt could only palm down McTominay's header and Tuanzebe blazed over from close range. In the 96th minute, the England youth global headed home from a corner to put Arsenal ahead for the first time in the tie.

After stopping back in Doha, Tillerson also made an unannounced visit to Iraq on Monday.

He also met India's External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and discussed bilateral and regional issues.

Following the August speech, Tillerson cautioned Pakistan that it could lose its status as a privileged military ally if it continued providing support to Afghan militant groups. Following the visit, Tillerson called on "moderate voices among the Taliban, voices that do not want to continue to fight forever", to "engage in a reconciliation process" that could end in their involvement in government, if they abandon terrorism, reports the Washington Post.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi yesterday reconfirmed Pakistan's commitment to the "war on terror" during a meeting with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, saying his country had "produced results" fighting the region's Islamist militants.

While both photos showed the two men sitting in a windowless room, the image released by Afghanistan has removed the military-style digital clock and fire alarm above the two men-both of which are pictured in the US copy.
