Act against terrorists, or we will – US to Pakistan.
The Voice of America (VOA) radio in a reported that the US intelligence chief has warned Pakistan of consequences if the country does not act against the terror safe havens in the country. He said that the US will ensure to do everything it can so that the terrorist safe heaven does not exist anymore.
The comment from the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) chief Mike Pompeo sees a lot more weightages as it came ahead of the planned visit to Pakistan by the US Defense Secretary James Mattis. Mike Pompeo said that the US Defense Secretary on his visit will ask Pakistan first to curb the breeding grounds of terror from its land. He also added that the defense secretary will pass on the message from US President Donald Trump to Pakistan about his seriousness for tackling terror safe havens. The US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) chief Mike Pompeo during an event at the Reagan National Defense Forum in Simi, California, also made it clear that in absence of Pakistan failing to achieve the set target, US will take upon the responsibility to make sure that the safe havens do not exist anymore. The US has given proofs for years that Pakistan is shielding the Afghan Taliban, including the Haqqani Network, in its territory these terror outfits are responsible for terror attacks in Afghanistan against the locals and the US soldiers. In August this year, in a fire and brimstone speech, Trump warned Pakistan to cut off aid if it does not take necessary action against the terrorist in its land. He accused Pakistan of sheltering the terror groups that to kill Americans.
This is not the first time US has come up with such warnings, but these warnings have no impact on Pakistan to act against the breeding safe heavens in its land. The reason for that is simply US has never imposed and sanction on the aids provided to Pakistan.
