Sushma Swaraj, US Secretary Rex Tillerson Attack Pakistan Over Terrorism, Discuss HIB Visa Issue

10/25/2017

New Delhi, Oct. 25: US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and External Affairs Minister of India Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday issued joint press statements in New Delhi. “Happy to inform that our defence and strategic relations have deepened after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the United States. India, USA, Afghanistan trilateral meeting will be held in December,” Swaraj said.

She also launched a scathing attack on Pakistan and said that the recent attacks in Afghanistan are a proof that safe havens and supporters of terrorism are active. She also said that Pakistan needs to act on this. Echoing Swaraj, Tillerson said that India and USA are natural allies and stand shoulder to shoulder against terror. “Terrorist safe havens will not be tolerated,” he said.

Speaking further, Swaraj said that US President Donald Trump’s policy on terrorism can only succeed when Pakistan takes action on terror groups. Meanwhile, Tillerson said that the US wants to work with Pakistan in a positive way as it thinks this is in their interest in longer term. “Had a very open frank exchange with Pakistan leaders in Islamabad yesterday, conveyed to Pak the expectations we have,” he said. He also added that too many terror groups find safe haven in Pakistan which is now threatening stability of the Pakistan government.

India and the US discussed the important contribution of Indians working in the USA on H1B visa, North Korea and USA-Afghanistan strategy. INDIA.COM
