Taliban increase influence, territory in Afghanistan: US watchdog
US President Donald Trump, while unveiling his strategy for Afghanistan in August, had pilloried Pakistan for harbouring “agents of chaos” and the “very enemy US forces have fighting in Afghanistan” for the past 17 years.
Tillerson, on his maiden visit to Islamabad, renewed the US demand seeking action against Afghan Taliban and the Haqqani network, saying many of the solutions to the regional challenges have to be found in Pakistan.
He pressed Pakistan to speed up its efforts against terrorism but described Islamabad as ‘incredibly important’ player to deal with some of the pressing challenges facing the region.
