Ambassadors in Islamabad briefed on anti-terrorism efforts, challenges
While answering to a question, he said Pakistan had been hosting Afghan refugees for last four decades.
But Khan noted the supply lines for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation troops in Afghanistan, formally known as the Ground Lines of Communication or the Air Lines of Communication are still open.
When asked at the seminar, Khan said Pakistan did the right thing by blocking North Atlantic Treaty Organisation supplies to Afghanistan following the 2011 attack at Salala check post.
The Trump administration last week suspended almost United States dollars 2 billion in security assistance to Pakistan for its failure to take decisive action against terror groups like the Taliban and the Haqqani Network.
The US on Wednesday hoped that Pakistan would demonstrate its willingness to aggressively confront terror groups that operate from its soil, amid reports that Islamabad has suspended Intelligence cooperation with America after the Trump administration froze military aid to it.
Ijaz Awan, a retired major general in the Pakistani military, argued that the US has pursued a policy of "coercion" towards Pakistan and that the approach of pressure tactics will be counterproductive.
Manning said that the USA stands ready to "work together" with Pakistan, and that, "the U.S has conveyed to Pakistan specific and concrete steps that it could take toward these ends", adding, "We stand ready to work together with Pakistan to combat terrorist groups without distinction".

Responding to another question, the spokesperson said that Pakistan desires to resolve all outstanding disputes with India including Jammu and Kashmir, Siachen and Sir Creek through dialogue. "Logistics trump strategy", he said.
Public accusations by Trump and other US officials were not taken well in Pakistan and political watchers and senior media personnel have slammed the USA move.
Pakistan is considered the safest and cheapest route to resupply North Atlantic Treaty Organisation troops.
Defense experts think the USA allegations and halt to military aid have forced the Pakistani government to use its leverage as it has this option, in view of the growing US pressure and its use of the blame game.
The development comes amid rising U.S.
"We always look at that", said Goldstein when asked if Washington is assessing alternative routes should Pakistan blocks supply routes to Afghanistan.
In a Sunday interview with CBS's Face the Nation, CIA Director Mike Pompeo said "the president has made very clear that he needs Pakistan to cease being a safe haven for terrorists that threaten the United States of America. End".
The Spokesperson said all states had a legitimate right to pursue peaceful uses of space technologies.
