US to watch Pakistan’s choices over new Afghan policy:Jim Ma

he US will “watch” Pakistan’s choices on President Donald Trump’s new Afghan and South Asia strategy to combat terrorism in its tracks, Defence Secretary Jim Mattis has said.

At the same time, Mattis also lauded India’s commitment towards the development in Afghanistan.

Trump, while announcing the new strategy for Afghanistan, had accused Pakistan of harbouring “agents of chaos” and providing safe havens to militant groups waging an insurgency against the US-backed government in Kabul.

Pakistan has opposed Trump’s Afghan and South Asia policy, saying it ignored the country’s sacrifices in the war against terrorism.

But, Mattis during a visit to Kabul said the new strategy was “not exclusive of someone”.

It is inclusive for all responsible states that want to stop terrorism in its tracks and defend the innocent, he said.

This is primarily because for the first time, the United States seeks to hold Pakistan accountable for its support to terrorist groups and organisation.

Trump’s also policy seeks greater developmental role for India in this war-torn country.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg agreed with both Mattis and Ghani, saying that this is a regional approach, which includes both Pakistan and India.

Both of them have to be included in a mutual approach.

He urged all countries in the region to support an Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace process.

Mattis said India has been “very, very generous” in its development assistance to Afghanistan.
