Pakistan brings up Kulbhushan Jadhav in UN Safety Council debate

Pakistan US clash at UN over Afghanistan

The US said that any efforts in Afghanistan can not be successful if a status quo in Pakistan, where terrorist organisations are given sanctuary inside the country's borders, is allowed to continue. They are mindsets that are reluctant to join hands in moving the region forward to build a shared future for our people and our youth.

The UN Security Council should step up pressure on Pakistan to "change its behavior", U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said, January 17.

Sullivan told the council that an Afghan-led, Afghan-owned approach to peace, with firm worldwide support for Afghan security forces, "will make clear to the Taliban that victory can not be won on the battlefield - a solution is and must be political". Jadhav was then taken to Islamabad via Quetta and was made to give pro-Pakistan statements through force & torture, " he said, according to news agency ANI.

Briefing reporters after returning from a UN Security Council visit to Afghanistan, she said the Afghanistan government has asked the 15-member powerful wing of the world body to step up pressure on Pakistan.

Haley had joined the 14 other council envoys for talks with top Afghan leaders in Kabul last weekend as the government considers holding peace talks with the Taliban to end decades of insurgency.

Sullivan said there had already been joint US-Afghan progress against Islamic State terrorists in the eastern part of the country, reducing their territory and eliminating a third of the group's fighters.

Walmart pharmacies will provide Dispose-RX at no cost to patients filling new class-two opioid prescriptions. The packet, called DisposeRx, dissolves pills into a biodegradable gel.

Miffed by Pakistan's inaction on terror groups, the United States has already suspended an aid of $ 2 billion.

"This approach is misguided or worse pernicious", he said. "We can and must fight ISIS in Afghanistan while ensuring the Taliban come to the negotiating table".

AFTER a long long time, the quarters concerned seem to be serious on the issue of repatriation of Afghan refugees to their homeland.

"The continuing force in Afghanistan without an accompanying political and diplomatic strategy will not yield a result different from what we have seen in 17 years", she criticized.

The United States is urging Pakistan not to give sanctuary to "terrorist organizations" — and Pakistan is demanding that the Trump administration address safe havens inside Afghanistan and its income from the narcotics trade.
