McCain Holds Regional Security Talks with Pakistan's Army Chief

Pakistan plays significant role in peace, stability in Afghanistan: McCain

Foreign affairs adviser Sartaj Aziz today said that the Kashmiris' struggle for freedom has changed India's stance that has been trying to declare the endeavours a terrorist movement.

Senator McCain agreed that continued close cooperation between the United States and Pakistan was essential for securing peace and stability in the region. Other members of the delegation, which arrived Sunday and is due to leave Monday, included Senator Lindsey Graham, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator David Perdue and Senator Sheldon Whitehouse.

Chairman of the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee John McCain said on Sunday that Pakistan plays a significant role in the establishment of peace and stability in Afghanistan.

Pakistan argues that it has done a great deal to help the USA in tracking down terrorists and points out that it has suffered hundreds of deaths in militants attacks in response to its crackdowns.

Arrest Made in Missing U of I Student Case
The FBI said on June 17 that they are offering a $10,000 reward for information that helps to find Zhang , US media reported. Zhang , who arrived in April at the school, was on her way to sign a lease at an apartment when she disappeared on June 9.

Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said that "the designation of individuals supporting the Kashmiri right to self-determination as terrorists is completely unjustified".

According to the Foreign Office, Senator McCain appreciated the contributions and sacrifices made by Pakistan in the fight against terrorism.

The US senators also praised the economic turnaround, as manifested by investors' interest and confidence in Pakistan.

Pakistan was also upset at the recent US arms deal with India signed during the visit of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Washington.

They agreed with the need for the USA and Pakistan to forge closer cooperation in confronting the peace and security challenges in the region and beyond.

Aziz conveyed to the U.S. delegation about Pakistan's success against terrorism through Operations Zarb-i-Azb and Raddul Fasaad, asserting that the terrorist networks had been dismantled, their sanctuaries eliminated under the overarching National Action Plan.

Aziz also raised concern over the inhumane activities of Indian forces in occupied Kashmir. "The dividend of these policies is empirically verifiable", he added.

He called for long-lasting cooperation among Pakistan, Afghanistan and the United States (US) for peace in Afghanistan.
