The statement was made during the foreign minister’s appearance on Geo News’ programme ‘Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kay Sath’ aired on Monday night.

“It was quite a frank exchange overall, in which there was no hostility,” the minister said of the Pakistani leadership’s meetings with the top US official.

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.

6 killed as suicide bomber blows up near Shia mosque in Kabul

A suicide bomber posing as a shepherd blew himself up near a Shia mosque in Kabul on Friday killing at least six people, police said, as Muslims prepare to observe the holy month of Muharram

The attack in the north of the Afghan capital happened as worshipers were gathered inside Hussainia mosque, one of the biggest Shia centers in the city, for Friday prayers.

“A suicide bomber who was grazing sheep has detonated himself outside” the mosque, General Salim Almas, criminal investigative director of Kabul city

There was no immediate claim of responsibility but fighters belonging to the Taliban and the militant Islamic State (IS) group have repeatedly targeted the minority Shia community in recent years.

Scientists probe Neptune’s depths For Research purposes

Scientists have helped solve the mystery of what lies beneath the surface of Neptune — the most distant planet in our solar system.

A new study sheds light on the chemical make-up of the planet, which lies around 4.5 billion kilometres from the sun.

Extremely low temperatures on planets like Neptune — called ice giants — mean that chemicals on these distant worlds exist in a frozen state, researchers say.

The team found that frozen mixtures of water and ammonia inside Neptune — and other ice giants, including Uranus — are likely to form a little-studied compound called ammonia hemihydrate.

The findings will influence how ice giants are studied in future and could help astronomers classify newly discovered planets as they look deeper into space.

The study, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, was supported by Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. The work was carried out in collaboration with scientists at Jilin University, China.

Dr Andreas Hermann, of the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Science at Extreme Conditions, said: “This study helps us better predict what is inside icy planets like Neptune. Our findings suggest that ammonia hemihydrate could be an important component of the mantle in ice giants, and will help improve our understanding of these frozen worlds.
