  • Pakistan-Turkey relationship transformed into strategic partnership PM

The new Trump policy lays special emphasis on kinetic operations to subdue the Taliban insurgency in Afghanistan, envisions greater role for India in Afghanistan and the overall regional security.

The Prime Minister office has rejected the controversial remarks attributed to PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi regarding any kind of involvement of Pakistanis in a recent attack in Afghanistan's capital, Kabul.

He will address the United Nations General Assembly on Thursday.

Abbasi's visit comes amidst tensions in the ties between Pakistan and the USA after President Donald Trump last month hit out at Islamabad for providing safe havens to "agents of chaos" that kill Americans in Afghanistan and warned Islamabad that it has "much to lose" by harbouring terrorists. "We will see how it goes".

"Issuing such statements strengthens the enemy's narrative", he said, adding that similar actions will weaken Pakistan's position internationally.

PM Abbasi said he has held one meeting with former prime minister Nawaz Sharif - who is in London these days - and is going to hold another "today" [Monday]. It is entitled: "The responsibility to protect and the prevention of genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity". He will also meet leaders of various nations that are part of the UN. In addition, the prime minister will exchange views with former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and some American business leaders.

Pakistan's Ambassador to the UN Maleeha Lodhi has said that the prime minister will highlight the Kashmir issue and other issues of concern to Pakistan. During a meeting with defense committees of the National Assembly and Senate at General Headquarters in Rawalpindi, he dismissed rumors of the Army's alleged role in the Panama Papers case as unfounded and said "the military had no role in ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif's ouster"; and that, for him, "the current prime minister is as good as the previous one".

It also "advised the relevant print media to carefully review the contents of discussions before reporting".
