White House claims weakening Daesh in Afghanistan

White House claims weakening Daesh in Afghanistan

Feb 23, 2018 - 15:15

KABUL (Pajhwok): President Donald Trump is not happy with Pakistan’s progress in the campaign against terrorism, says the White House.

White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah told reporters in Washington on Thursday: “We have restored some clarity in our relationship with Pakistan.”

Referring to suspension of military assistance to Pakistan, he said the United States was holding the nuclear-capable nation accountable for its actions.

He added the US was concerned over Pakistan’s deficiencies in implementing laws against money laundering, terrorism.

Shah continued the US had seen modest progress in terms of Pakistan’s actual acknowledgement of these concerns. “The President is not satisfied with progress when it comes to Pakistan.”

The US had made significant progress against Islamic State progress in Afghanistan, reducing their presence and eliminating hundreds of fighters, he claimed.

“We’ve eliminated their top leaders, and we’re working relentlessly to target their leadership and bases wherever they emerge,” Shah maintained.
