Pakistan wants peace in Afghanistan, Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor said on Thursday, but stressed that Islamabad can not be blamed for failures in the neighbouring country.

Responding to questions, Goldstein said the USA has so far not heard from Pakistan on its reported decision to suspend its military and intelligence cooperation with it in retaliation of the Trump administration's decision to freeze all its security assistance.

Denying the presence of Daesh and Taliban leadership in Pakistan, Faisal said there were no safe havens of terrorists and Taliban leadership in Pakistan.

From the looks of things, Mario Tennis Aces's story mode looks to be quite a bit different from the ones in the portable games. The new character, Joy, will feature new perks, new weapons, and a cool LED mask when Payday 2 launches next month.

However, the United States officials also insist that the Taliban, Haqqani network, and other terror groups posing threats to Afghanistan and the U.S. forces still have sanctuaries and freedom of action in Pakistan. "Pakistan does not want to put a price on its sacrifices but wants them to be recognized", the minister said, adding that Pakistan will not allow the continuation of Afghanistan's war on its own territory.

Maj-Gen Asif said Pakistan had restored peace on its soil and now Afghanistan will also have to do so.

Democratic opponents of the tax cut sneer that it was a "giveaway" to corporate interests, disguised as a reform. The nation's unemployment rate has sat at 4.1 percent for three months now, the lowest level since 2000 .

The briefing assumes significance as it was held in the backdrop of renewed allegations by the United States, which is pressurizing Pakistan to do more just to shift the blame of its failure in Afghanistan on Pakistan. "Pakistan's economy has carried the burden of hosting Afghan refugees since long and in the present circumstances it can not sustain it further", it added.

Referring to his conversation with the US Ambassador to Pakistan, Goldstein hoped that Pakistan will join the US in its effort with regard to fight against terrorism.

The military spokesman said that they have sent documents to Afghanistan pertaining to the management of long porous border between the two countries.
