Abbasi, for his part, underlined the need for a broad based engagement to strengthen partnership and enhance cooperation between the two countries, adding that no other country benefits more from peace and stability in Afghanistan than Pakistan.

Top military leadership met on Tuesday to discuss internal and regional security developments in a Corps Commanders Conference in Rawalpindi, chaired by Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa. "We have eliminated safe havens from Pakistan's soil but are prepared to look into the possibility of miscreants exploiting Pakistan's hospitality to the Afghan Refugees to the detriment of our Afghan brothers", it said.

Lt Col Michael Andrews, a Pentagon spokesman, said payments to Pakistan from the fund are still frozen, and that "Secretary Mattis has not yet made a decision on the certification required" by Congress to release the $400 million in counter-terrorism funds for Pakistan in fiscal 2017. The fact that three separate press statements were issued after the meetings speaks volumes about disagreements among the parties, said a source.

Pakistan has offered conditional support to help to put a full stop to the cross-border attacks in Kabul by the militants using the Pakistani territory. Secondly, Washington has been told to play its role in the return of Afghan refugees from Pakistan, a step that would ensure no militants can hide in the garb of refugees on the Pakistani soil.

Odd-Even rule to be implemented without exemptions in Delhi
Air quality in Delhi has been hovering between the "poor" and "very poor" categories but was not "severe" since November 13. Pollution is considered severe plus or emergency when readings of PM2.5 and PM10 cross 300 and 500 ug/m3 respectively.


A day before the Mattis arrived in Islamabad, Central Intelligence Agency Director Mike Pompeo had warned Pakistan that if it does not eliminate the alleged safe havens inside its territory, the United States would do "everything we can" to destroy them.

"If the USA could take these two steps, Pakistan would guarantee that its soil would never be used for any militant activities across the Afghan border", a source privy to the details of the meeting said.

Pakistan has repeatedly expressed its serious concerns regarding India's role in Afghanistan to the U.S. and Afghan leadership, according to reports. The conference members chose to pursue the steps for establishment of peace in Afghanistan.
