  1. Umar Ahmed Haque is seen in this undated custody photograph received via the Metropolitan Police, in London, Britain on March 2, 2018. Photo: Metropolitan Police/Handout via Reuters LONDON: A British supporter of Daesh was found guilty on Friday of trying to recruit children he was teaching into an?army? of jihadists to help carry out a wave of attacks across London. Umar Haque, 25, showed the children beheading videos and other violent militant propaganda, forced them to re-enact deadly attacks on the British capital and made them role-play attacking police officers. ?His plan was to create an army of children to assist with multiple terrorist attacks throughout London,? said Dean Haydon, head of the Metropolitan Police?s Counter Terrorism Command.?He tried and he did, we believe, radicalise vulnerable children from the ages of 11 to 14.? Although he had no qualifications and was employed as an administrator, police say Haque used the guise of teaching Islamic studies to groom 110 children into becoming militants at the Lantern of Knowledge, a small private Islamic school, and at a madrassa connected to the Ripple Road Mosque in east London. Abuthaher Mamun is seen in this undated custody photograph received via the Metropolitan Police, in London, Britain on March 2, 2018. Photo: Metropolitan Police/Handout via Reuters Of those children, 35 are now undergoing long-term safeguarding measures involving social services and other authorities. Six of the group gave evidence at Haque?s trial, detailing how he taught them fighting was good and had given them training such as doing push-ups to build their strength. His intention was to use them to attack London targets such as the Big Ben tower, soldiers from the Queen?s Guards, a large shopping centre, banks, and media stations, prosecutors said. Believed to have been self-radicalised online, Haque was inspired by an attack in March last year when Khalid Masood ploughed a rented car into pedestrians on London?s Westminster Bridge, killing four, before stabbing to death a police officer in the grounds of parliament. He had discussed with Abuthaher Mamun ? a 19-year-old who also taught at the mosque ? carrying out a similar attack using guns and a hire car packed with explosives. He had made the children re-enact Masood?s assault and told another co-defendant the public deserved to be annihilated. Role-playing ?He tried to prepare the children for martyrdom by making them role-play terrorist attacks. Part of that role-playing was re-enacting attacking police officers,? Haydon said. ?He had shown them graphic terrorist videos - beheading videos and frightening terrorist activities overseas. He described himself as a loyal follower to IS.? Haydon said the children had been?paralysed by fear? into not telling their parents or teachers, with Haque saying he was part of IS and threatening that they would suffer the same fate as those in the militant videos he showed them. Muhammad Abid is seen in this undated custody photograph received via the Metropolitan Police, in London, Britain on March 2, 2018. Photo: Metropolitan Police/Handout via Reuters However, Haque?s?ambitious?, long-term plans were in an early stage, he said. No issues had been raised at the school - rated outstanding by government inspectors - prior to Haque?s arrest and when it came to light what was going on, police initially met a wall of silence from the children. ?He shouldn?t have been teaching, so that?s a concern,? Haydon said.?We have had challenges with both the local community and some of these institutions.? Haque was found guilty at London?s Old Bailey Court of a number of offences including preparing terrorist acts, having previously pleaded guilty to four charges. Mamun, who police said was involved in fundraising and attack planning, and Muhammad Abid, 27, were also convicted of helping him. They will all be sentenced at a later date.
  2. QUETTA: Security forces foiled a major terrorist bid in Balochistan?s Pishin area, arresting six suspected terrorists, said the Inter-Services Public Relations on Friday. According to the ISPR, the suspected terrorists have been arrested from Pishin?s Karbala area. The ISPR said that 500kg of explosive material has been recovered from the possession of terrorists. The recovered material included explosive jackets, sub-machine guns and improvised explosive devices, said the ISPR. The army?s media cell said that mines and tools of communication were also found in the operation. A number of such operations have been conducted in the province where security forces are battling an insurgency said to be supported by hostile agencies. The search operations are also being conducted as part of Operation Raddul Fasaad, a nationwide military operation involving all law-enforcement agencies launched in February 2017.
  3. Advisor to PM Miftah Ismail. ? Reuters FILE ISLAMABAD: Advisor to PM on Finance Miftah Ismail has brushed off concerns that economic growth will suffer because of the country?s re-inclusion on a terrorist financing watch list, and lashed out against the United States for seeking to ?embarrass? the nation. Washington last week persuaded member states of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) to place Pakistan back on the ?grey list? of nations with inadequate terrorist financing or money laundering controls. Pakistan was on the list for three years, until 2015. The diplomatic setback has sparked anger in Islamabad against United States, which championed the motion against Pakistan at the FATF meeting in Paris. It represented another blow to the worsening relationship between the uneasy allies. Ismail, who led Pakistan?s negotiations in Paris, told Reuters that Washington did not seem genuinely eager to see Pakistan boost its terrorist financing regulations and was instead bent on humiliating the country. ?If the Americans were interested in working with us and improving our CTF (counter-terrorist financing) regulations, they would have taken the offer I was making them,? Ismail said. ?But their idea was just to embarrass Pakistan.? Ismail said that he urged the United States to allow Pakistan until June to fix any outstanding CTF issues and ceded ground in negotiations to strike a deal, but that the US was determined to see Pakistan suffer. He said Pakistan?s law-enforcement shortcomings are often confused for lack of desire, especially at provincial level, where police officers are poorly trained when it comes to terrorist financing legislation. ?The will is there,? he added. The advisor to PM ruled out Pakistan?s retaliating against Washington over the FATF listing. He said the country would keep working to improve its CTF capabilities and win the confidence of Britain, Germany and France, who co-sponsored the US motion in Paris. Pakistan hopes to be removed from the grey list in six to 12 months from June, when it will be officially placed on the watch list, Ismail added. 'Little hiccup' The PM's aide said he did not foresee the FATF decision acting as a brake on Pakistan?s economy, which, with growth above 5 percent, is expanding at its fastest pace in a decade. ?I would rather not be in the list, but I don?t think it will hurt? economic growth, Ismail said, adding that ordinary Pakistanis would not see any impact from the FATF move. He pointed out that Pakistan?s economic growth accelerated even during the period the country was last on the watch list. From 2012-2015, exports and foreign currency reserves expanded, while its stock market shot up by more than 200 percent, he said. ?We are focused on improving our economy and overcoming this little hiccup,? Ismail said. ?We will continue on our path forward.? Later during his appearance on Geo News show 'Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kay Saath', the PM's aide said, "We are not in any list at present. The decision has been made to put Pakistan on a monitoring and reporting list, commonly known as grey list. [embed_video1 url=http://stream.jeem.tv/vod/a76dd36ab565f4dd49b1f3344c06dd4a.mp4/playlist.m3u8?wmsAuthSign=c2VydmVyX3RpbWU9Mi8yNi8yMDE4IDc6NDA6MDkgUE0maGFzaF92YWx1ZT1vNncxSE5UMzUrbHZ4OURlSkUrNTd3PT0mdmFsaWRtaW51dGVzPTYwJmlkPTE= style=center] "There has been a perception that if we were not included in the grey list then we would be put on the black list. There is no question about that, given all what we have done, including anti-money laundering laws, anti-terrorism laws [made] in Pakistan." Ismail said that after all this, it is impossible to put Pakistan on the black list. He clearly stated that "between now and June" Pakistan is not included in any list, adidng, "There is no reporting requirement nor we have to do anything in this period." Ismail said they informed all the concerned countries, including those four states behind the proposal against us, about measures taken by Pakistan. "They said that you took quite long and that they do not have an analysis of all this." He further said that they grey list does not impose any sanctions and so it would not impact Pakistan's economy.
  4. Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal/File photo LAHORE: Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal on Saturday said the bid by some western countries to place Pakistan on a global terrorist-financing watchlist is a political act. Speaking to media in Lahore, the interior minister said the West wants to pressurise Pakistan to achieve certain objectives, because of which it is pushing to place the country on the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) watchlist. The United States earlier this month put forward a motion to place Pakistan on the FATF watchlist. The FATF, an intergovernmental body based in Paris, sets global standards for fighting illicit finance. Iqbal shared concern that such pressure tactics would negatively impact Pakistan?s efforts in the war against terrorism. Pakistan has been scrambling in recent months to avert being added to a list of countries deemed non-compliant with terrorist financing regulations by the FATF, a measure that officials fear could hurt its economy. US moves to put Pakistan on global terrorist-financing watchlist A meeting of FATF member states is due to take place next week in Paris, where the motion on Pakistan could be adopted The country?s de facto finance minister, Miftah Ismail, said earlier this week that the United States and Britain put forward the motion, and later persuaded France and Germany to co-sponsor it. Pakistan was working with the US, UK, Germany and France for the nomination to be withdrawn, he added. To a question, the interior minister said that the decision relating to placing of names on the Exit Control List (ECL) would be made on merit. He emphasised that the ECL should not be made a political tool. The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Wednesday formally requested the Ministry of Interior to place former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Capt (retd) Safdar's names on the ECL, in connection to the references relating to Azizia Mills, Flagship and Avenfield properties.

  5. Police tape blocks a visitor´s entrance to the headquarters of the National Security Agency (NSA) after a shooting incident at the entrance in Fort Meade. -AFP WASHINGTON: The shooting incident on Wednesday at the headquarters of the US National Security Agency outside Washington does not appear to be a terror attack, an FBI official said. "There is no indication that this has a nexus to terrorism," said FBI Special Agent in Charge Gordon Johnson. Three people were arrested after their vehicle crashed at the entrance to the ultra-secret US spy agency in Fort Meade, Maryland, Johnson said. One of the three was injured and sent to a hospital, and the other two are in custody. Two other people ? an NSA police official and a bystander ? were also injured and sent to hospital, he said. Shots were fired early Wednesday at the ultra-secret National Security Agency, the US electronic spying agency outside Washington, leaving one person injured, officials said. Aerial footage of the scene from NBC News showed a black SUV with numerous bullet holes in its windshield crashed into concrete barriers at the main entrance to the NSA's headquarters in Fort Meade, Maryland. The images showed what appeared to be police surrounding a man on the ground in handcuffs. "The situation is under control and there is no ongoing security or safety threat," the NSA said. "We can confirm there has been one person injured and we don't know how the injuries occurred," an NSA spokesman told AFP. The local ABC television affiliate put the number of injured at three and said a suspect was arrested. The Baltimore office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which is handling the investigation, said the incident "has been contained." A law enforcement source told AFP that it was too soon to know whether the incident was an attack on the facility or otherwise. They are "still trying to ascertain the facts," the source said. "The president has been briefed on the shooting at Ft Meade," the White House said in a statement. "Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone that has been affected." 'Puzzle Palace' The NSA is the premier US signals intelligence agency, eavesdropping on electronic communications and hacking computers of US adversaries and suspects worldwide, and also protects US communications and information systems from cyber attack. The agency was thrust into the spotlight in 2013 when former contractor Edward Snowden leaked details of its global surveillance programs, including its collection of data on Americans. Its compound, known as the "Puzzle Palace" - located about 32 kilometers northeast of Washington - is highly secure. In March 2015, guards at the NSA gate opened fire on an SUV which did not heed orders to stop, killing the driver and wounding a passenger. The two involved, it turned out, were men dressed as women who made a wrong turn into a restricted lane and may have refused to stop because, it later turned out, there were drugs in their vehicle. The leading US spy agencies installed heavy security at their facilities after an assault rifle-wielding man opened fire on cars waiting to enter the Central Intelligence Agency's headquarters compound in McLean, Virginia in January 1993. Two CIA employees were killed and three wounded. The man, Aimal Kasi, was eventually arrested and convicted of murder and executed in 2002. In 2016, a man drove his car into a fence gate at the CIA headquarters, claiming he was an agency recruit. He was arrested but was found to be mentally unstable, and only received 30 days in jail and a fine.
  6. Law enforcement agencies have frequently arrested terrorists belonging to Jundullah operating in Pakistan. Photo: Reuters file ISLAMABAD: The Interior ministry on Tuesday placed a ban on terrorist outfit Jundullah. A group associated with the banned outfit, Al-Harmain Foundation, was also banned on charges of collecting funds, pursuant to resolution 1267 (1999) of the United Nations Security Council's (UNSC). A notification, issued by the ministry on January 31, states that the organisation is acting in a manner that 'may be concerned in terrorism.' A notification issued by the Ministry of Interior on January 31, 2018, placed a ban on terrorist organisation Jundullah. Photo: Geo News "Now, whereas, in exercise of the powers conferred by Section 11B of the Anti Terrorism Act, 1997 (XXVII of 1997), as amended, the Federal Government hereby places Jundullah Organization as proscribed organisation, further extendable, for the purpose of this Act and list the said Organization in the First Schedule to the said Act," states the notification. The Gazette of Pakistan added the organisation to the list of banned organisations. Two organisations, Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) and Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation (FIF), are also expected to be banned, sources within the interior ministry informed Geo News. Jundullah, a splinter group of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), in 2014 announced to pledge its support to Daesh.
  7. The explosives were being transported in sacks to Gujrat-Geo News GUJRAT: Police on Friday arrested two suspected terrorists and recovered 175kg of explosives from them, averting a major terror bid in the city. According to DSP Ramzan, police recovered the explosives from a car stopped at a picket in Lala Musa. CTD Faisalabad thwarts terror bid, arrests two TTP suspects The CTD said the terrorists were nabbed while on their way to carry out a terrorist attack at a sensitive installation in the city The explosives were being transported in sacks to Gujrat, police said. Two suspects were arrested by the police and were shifted to an unknown place for further investigation. In January, the counter-terrorism department (CTD) arrested two suspected Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) terrorists and recovered explosives from their possession from Faisalabad. The CTD said the terrorists were nabbed while on their way on Satiana Road to carry out a terrorist attack at a sensitive installation in the city. Three kilogrammes of explosives, two detonators and other equipment was recovered from their possession.
  8. Salah Abdeslam, the sole surviving suspect of the November 2015 Paris attacks-AFP BRUSELLS: Paris terror attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam has refused to return to his trial in Belgium this week over a shootout with police in Brussels that led to his capture, the court said Tuesday. The fresh show of defiance comes after Abdeslam berated judges for being anti-Muslim, refused to stand and said that he put his "trust in Allah" on the first day of the trial on Monday. It appears to dash any lingering hopes that Abdeslam might answer questions about the March 15, 2016, gun battle or about his suspected ties to the cell linked to both the 2015 Paris and 2016 Brussels attacks. "The court has received notice from the defendant to tell us that he will not take part in his trial on Thursday. It´s obviously his right not to appear," Luc Hennart, the court´s administrative head, told AFP. "It will not change how the trial unfolds," Hennart added. One of Abdeslam´s defence lawyers, Romain Delcoigne, told AFP: "We duly note it." Laura Severin, lawyer of Abdeslam´s co-defendant Sofiane Ayari, declined to comment when reached by AFP. Abdeslam had originally requested to attend his trial at the Palais de Justice in Brussels despite being held in France, where he has been in solitary confinement since April 2016. The Belgian-born French national of Moroccan descent is the only surviving suspect in the Paris attacks on November 13, 2015, that left 130 people dead. Abdeslam has refused point-blank to speak to investigators since his arrest in Brussels three days after the gun battle. Trial ´not finished´ Hennart said he still expected Ayari, a 24-year-old Tunisian arrested with Abdeslam three days after the shootout, to appear when the trial resumes. Both Abdeslam and Ayari face charges of attempted murder of three police officers who were wounded in a gunfight during a raid on the apartment where the two suspects were hiding out, and on charges relating to banned weapons. A third extremist, from Algeria, was killed in the shootout. In the early hours of Monday Abdeslam was transferred under tight security from a jail near Paris to Brussels for the trial, and then taken to another prison in northern France on Monday night. He had refused to stand for the court or answer questions about the Belgian case, alleging that Muslims were treated "mercilessly" as he explained why he would not cooperate despite having asked to attend the trial. "I am not afraid of you, I am not afraid of your allies," said a defiant Abdeslam, who has grown long hair and a beard during his nearly two years behind bars. "I put my trust in Allah and that´s all." Prosecutor Kathleen Grosjean recommended the pair be sentenced to 20 years in prison, what she said is the maximum sentence for an attempt to murder police officers. Several people had said on Monday night that they had hoped Abdeslam would speak. "The trial is not yet finished," Maryse Alie, who is representing five of the six police officers who came under fire in March 2016, said late Monday. "He could still decide to speak, all the more so, I think, as everyone expressed his point of view calmly," Alie added.
  9. LONDON: A British man who grew "obsessed" with Muslims was found guilty on Thursday of murder and attempted murder after deliberately driving into a group of people outside a London mosque. Jurors found Darren Osborne, 48, from the Welsh capital Cardiff, guilty of murdering 51-year-old Makram Ali and trying to kill others in the Finsbury Park area of north London on June 19. Unemployed "loner" Osborne had pleaded not guilty, telling London's Woolwich Crown Court that a man called "Dave" had taken his place in the driver's seat of his van minutes before the attack. But witnesses recalled Osborne saying, "I've done my job, you can kill me now" and "at least I had a proper go" to members of the public in the immediate aftermath of the attack. The jury of eight women and four men took one hour to convict the father-of-four, whose obsession with Muslims began a month before the attack after watching a BBC drama "Three Girls", which told the story of a child *** abuse ring in northern England. A handwritten note found in the van with Osborne's fingerprints on it read: "terrorists on our streets. "Don't people get it? This is happening up and down our green and pleasant land. The Crown Prosecution Service said Osborne "planned and carried out this attack because of his hatred of Muslims". "He later invented an unconvincing story to counter the overwhelming weight of evidence but the jury has convicted him," said Sue Hemming from the state prosecutors. "We have been clear throughout that this was a terrorist attack, and he must now face the consequences of his actions." He will be sentenced at a later date.
  10. WASHINGTON: The United States on Wednesday put the head of Palestinian movement Hamas, Ismail Haniya, on its terror blacklist and slapped sanctions on him -- a move sure to raise tensions, after Washington recognised Jerusalem as Israel?s capital. The 55-year-old Haniya, who was named head of Hamas in May 2017, represents the more pragmatic wing of the movement, which said the US move would not deter the group?s "resistance." "Haniya has close links with Hamas? military wing and has been a proponent of armed struggle, including against civilians," the State Department said in a statement. "He has reportedly been involved in terrorist attacks against Israeli citizens. Hamas has been responsible for an estimated 17 American lives killed in terrorist attacks." Haniya is now on the US Treasury sanctions blacklist, which freezes any US-based assets he may have and bans any US person or company from doing business with him. Hamas -- which has controlled the Gaza Strip for more than a decade -- had already been on the US terror blacklist since 1997. The US government also slapped sanctions on Harakat al-Sabireen -- a small splinter group that operates in Gaza -- and two other groups active in Egypt: Liwa al-Thawra and HASM. "These designations target key terrorist groups and leaders, who are threatening the stability of the Middle East, undermining the peace process, and attacking our allies Egypt and Israel," Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a statement. "Today?s actions are an important step in denying them the resources they need to plan and carry out their terrorist activities." In Gaza, Hamas said: "The American decision to include Haniya on the terrorist list is a failed attempt to pressure the resistance. "This decision will not deter us from continuing the resistance option to expel the occupation." Hamas has fought three wars with Israel since 2008. 'Every red line' Haniya replaced Khaled Meshaal, who now lives in Doha in exile, atop the Hamas movement. Unlike Meshaal, Haniya will remain in the Gaza Strip. Also known as Abu Abed, Haniya was born in Gaza?s Shati refugee camp in January 1963 to parents who fled when Israel was created in 1948. Hamas has frequently highlighted his modest background as a counterpoint to officials within president Mahmud Abbas? Palestinian Authority. Relations between Washington and the Palestinians have been severely strained since US President Donald Trump broke with decades of policy in December to name Jerusalem as Israel?s capital. The Hamas leader voiced rage over the decision, saying it "crosses every red line," and called for a new intifada, or uprising. "This Zionist policy supported by the US cannot be confronted unless we ignite a new intifada," Haniya said. Days of demonstrations in the Palestinian territories and other parts of the Middle East ensued. Washington says the new embassy will open in Jerusalem in 2019.
  11. Afghan Ambassador to Pakistan Dr Omar Zakhilwal. -File ISLAMABAD: Afghan Ambassador to Pakistan Dr Omar Zakhilwal on Wednesday expressed his surprise after Pakistan's Foreign Office claimed a day earlier that the country had handed over 27 suspected terrorists to Afghan authorities in November 2017. On Tuesday, FO spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal had said that Pakistan had handed over individuals, who were suspected of belonging to Tehreek-i-Taliban Afghanistan (TTA) and Haqqani Network (HN), to Afghanistan. Zakhilwal, in a post on a social media platform, said it would be it would be a huge step in the bilateral relationship between the two countries "if this indeed happens". Afghan authorities, on a regular basis, blame Pakistan after major terrorist attacks in the country and accuse Pakistan of providing safe haven to terror networks operating inside Afghanistan. Pakistan, in its defence, counters the allegations by stating that a large portion of Afghan territory is outside of Kabul's influence and control, providing adequate room to terror outfits to carry out their activities in both countries. Faisal had also said that Pakistan has continued to push any suspected TTA and HN elements to prevent them from using Pakistani soil for terrorist activity in Afghanistan. Earlier in January, the United States announced that it was suspending the transfer of military equipment and security-related funds to Pakistan. The suspension of security assistance to Islamabad came after Washington accused Pakistan of playing a ?double game? on fighting terrorism and warned Islamabad it would have to do more if it wanted to maintain US aid. US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley had also confirmed that Washington would withhold $255 million in assistance to Pakistan. Haley's statement followed an angry tweet from Trump that the US had been rewarded with ?nothing but lies and deceit? for giving Pakistan billions in aid. In August, Trump concluded a months-long review of America?s strategy to win the brutal war in Afghanistan ? now entering its 17th year ? and called for an increase in the tempo and intensity of strikes against the Taliban. The aim was to persuade some Taliban factions to enter talks with the government in Kabul. This month?s spate of bombings and Trump?s comments indicate that the end game may be further away than the White House would like.

  17. FO Spokesperson Dr Faisal. Photo: File Pakistan has fought the war against terrorism largely from its own resources which has cost over $120 billion in 15 years, states a press release issued from the Foreign Office on Friday. ?We are determined to continue to do all it takes to secure the lives of our citizens and broader stability in the region,? the statement reads. ?We are engaged with the United States administration on the issue of security cooperation and await further details.? Moreover, impact of US' decision on pursuit of common objectives is also likely to emerge more clearly in due course of time, according to the Foreign Office. However, as per the statement, the cooperation between Pakistan and US in fighting terrorism has directly served US national security interests as well as the larger interests of international community. It has helped decimate al-Qaeda and fight other groups who took advantage of ungoverned spaces, a long porous border and posed a common threat to peace, it reads. Through a series of major counter-terrorism operations Pakistan cleared all these areas resulting in elimination of organised terrorist presence leading to significant improvement in security in Pakistan. ?Our efforts towards peace are awaiting reciprocal actions from the Afghan side in terms of clearance of vast stretches of ungoverned spaces, bilateral border management, repatriation of Afghan refugees, controlling poppy cultivation, drug trafficking and initiating Afghan-led and owned political reconciliation in Afghanistan,? the statement adds. Working towards enduring peace requires mutual respect and trust along with patience and persistence. Emergence of new and more deadly groups such as Daesh in Afghanistan call for enhancing international cooperation. Arbitrary deadlines, unilateral pronouncements and shifting goalposts are counterproductive in addressing common threats.

  19. ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan is one the most active politicians on Twitter. However, he often fires away a tweet not realising that people still remember what he said in the past, even if he himself does not. On Wednesday and Thursday the PTI chairman posted on twitter claiming he had opposed Pakistan becoming a part of the US-led War on Terror. He posted: ?From the start I had opposed Pak becoming part of US-led so-called "War on Terror". Now, after suffering 70k dead, over $100 bn loss to economy, when we had nothing to do with 9/11, constant "do more" US taunts & after nation has been humiliated by Trump, GoP saying the same.? Known by many of his critics as Mr U-turn, for having changed his position on multiple issues, multiple times, Imran Khan forgot that after 9/11 he had, in fact supported Pervez Musharraf and lauded the decision to join the War on Terror. Not only that, Imran Khan had also voted for the decision in the referendum held by Musharraf and during an interview with an American channel termed Musharraf?s decision to be ?the best he could have done?.

"As far as money is concerned, by giving Pakistan since 1947 $50 billion or so, that is not our price. If assistance by America has been given to us in the security domain, that is their national interest and being a superpower, they have defence cooperation with countries across the world." "But making some payments over the war on terror and then saying they are making heavy payments, Pakistan is not fighting for money," said the Army spokesman. US President Donald Trump, in a new security policy issued on Monday, had insisted that Pakistan take a "decisive action against militant and terrorist groups operating from its soil". Major General Asif Ghafoor was speaking in Geo News Capital Talk. He added that lately the government and the army chief have given statements over the issue as well. "We need nothing from the US, but acknowledgements for our contributions, our sacrifices and our efforts for peace in the region," stated the major general. Referring to the start of the war, DG ISPR said, "We all know how the war on terror was started and how it was imposed upon us and we have made fought it as our war in the interests of our country." "We did whatever we had to in the interest of Pakistan and what we do in the future will also be in our interests," said the Army spokesman. He added that Afghanistan's war will not be fought again on Pakistani soil and there have been plenty of discussions on what measures need to be taken on the border and regarding coordination. When asked about the US policy giving an upper hand to India in the region, Ghafoor said the US being a superpower has its own interests in the region and relations with sovereign nations. US presses Pakistan for 'decisive action against militants on its soil' 'We make massive payments to Pakistan every year; they have to help,' Trump says, while announcing new national security strategy "But one line which has been clarified to them from Pakistan is that, any policy which compromises Pakistan's national interest will not be right," stated the Army spokesman. He further said that if Afghanistan has Indian involvement, in Pakistan they [India] has anti-state involvement, for which we have proof, so American can give India any status but any role which gives India permission to work against Pakistan's national interest, will not be acceptable to Pakistan." Speaking of the Senate briefing given by General Bajwa, Ghafoor said legislators should be well aware of the security situation and it is good that certain things were cleared after today's briefing. He also said they were very happy with the respect given to the army chief and felt very welcome. US security policy The 55-page security policy released by the United States states that it continues to face threats from transnational terrorists and militants operating from within Pakistan. The document said that the US interests in the region include countering terrorist threats that impact the security of the US and its allies, and preventing cross-border terrorism among others. "We seek a Pakistan that is not engaged in destabilising behaviour and a stable and self-reliant Afghanistan. We will press Pakistan to intensify its counterterrorism efforts, since no partnership can survive a country?s support for militants and terrorists who target a partner?s own service members and officials." Announcing the new national security strategy at the White House, Trump said, "We have made it clear to Pakistan that while we desire a continued partnership, we must see decisive action against terrorist groups operating on their territory." "And we make massive payments every year to Pakistan; they have to help," he added. Shift in south Asian policy In August, Trump lambasted Islamabad for harbouring "agents of chaos" on its soil, as he cleared the way for the deployment of thousands more US troops to Afghanistan. Pakistani officials responded to the allegations saying that the US should not ?scapegoat? Pakistan for its failure to eliminate militant sanctuaries inside Afghanistan. The document further said the prospect for an Indo-Pakistani military conflict that could lead to a nuclear exchange remains a key concern requiring consistent diplomatic attention, besides preventing nuclear weapons, technology, and materials from falling into the hands of terrorists. "The US will also encourage Pakistan to continue demonstrating that it is a responsible steward of its nuclear assets." The US also promised to further its trade ties with Pakistan if it helped Washington achieve counterterrorism goals. "In Pakistan, we will build trade and investment ties as security improves and as Pakistan demonstrates that it will assist the United States in our counterterrorism goals," the document read.
