  • PM calls for evolving mechanism for providing drugs to poor at affordable prices

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said Pakistan has not received any USA list on terrorist sanctuaries.

Abbasi made the remarks during a press conference with the reporters on Tuesday, claiming that Pakistan does not provide safe havens to the terror groups.

"Pakistan offered cooperation and Pakistan continues to offer cooperation against terrorism", said the prime minister.

Russian Federation to ask for United Nations peacekeepers in Ukraine, says Vladimir Putin
Putin insisted during remarks to reporters that the peacekeepers be deployed between government forces and rebel-controlled areas in Ukraine's east.


Both countries' foreign ministers agreed that there is no military solution to the conflict in Afghanistan, and stressed the need for regional powers to work for an Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace process, the FO said. Taliban is a reality in Afghanistan and would not disappear with a military onslaught as we have witnessed during the last over one decade that the combined might of 47 nations and barbaric use of all kinds of weapons could not root them out.

"The issue of terrorism, of course, was a matter of concern for Pakistan as well and it had done the most in addressing it", he said and added, "We had defeated it". He said that Pakistan was open to bilateral verifications and joint patrols. Pakistan has repeatedly faced criticism that it is sheltering militants who planned or carried out attacks inside Afghanistan.

Pakistani officials have been complaining since that Trump's allegations were false.

He also said Pakistan's 70-year relationship with the United States should not be defined by Afghanistan alone. President Trump had wisely hinted to withdraw from the country but now he has reversed the policy by announcing to dispatch more troops in the hope of grabbing mineral resources of Afghanistan. The implication seemed to be that the USA was demanding Pakistan take certain actions to placate them.

USA officials and independent analysts have long accused Pakistan of turning a blind eye to militants battling US forces in Afghanistan, even as it cracks down on other militant groups that target its own citizens.

"We respect other's sovereignty and expect the same from them", he said.

What Pep? Guardiola unsure if Man City can win Premier League title
Captain Vincent Kompany will miss out for City once more due to his latest calf injury setback. We are not dreaming - when you're in that position [of having a chance] it's better to be calm.


But, with Beijing investing upwards of $50 billion in Pakistan as part of its One Belt One Road project, US aid has lost the sway it once held.
