Donald Trump has disrespected our contribution to war against terrorism, says Pakistan

US envoy calls on Pakistan foreign minister after Trump threats

The statement concluded that "Pakistan reiterates its view that there is no exclusive military solution to the crisis in Afghanistan".

He observed that USA has not taken care of sovereignty of Pakistan in the past and if it will repeat past practices then "we Pakistan must raise the issue internationally".

Spokesperson Michael Anton clarified on Tuesday that President Donald Trump put Pakistan on notice with his new Afghan policy.

"We can no longer be silent about Pakistan's safe havens for terrorist organisations, the Taliban, and other groups that pose a threat to the region and beyond", Trump had said.

Meanwhile, Pakistan feels that there certainly has been no innovative nor any ground breaking revelation in President Trump's latest review onAfghanistan and South Asia, despite the fact that Monday's announcement has been eight months in the making.

This is an "excuse" on the part of Pakistan, he said according to Politico, which reported about the conference call.

Earlier on Tuesday, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on the lines of Trump's rhetoric issued stern warning to Pakistan to crackdown on militants and terrorists in the country or risk losing the status of a US non-NATO ally. They're not deploying troops.

"No country in the world has done more than Pakistan to counter the menace of terrorism".

Pakistani Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif reacted strongly to the criticism by US President Donald Trump and said that Mr. Trump has disrespected and disregarded Pakistan's contribution on war against terrorism. The answer is we have leverage points over Pakistan that the strategy contemplates we will use.

'Ultimately whether they behave better or not is completely up to them, ' Anton threatened.

"They may calculate that it's more important to, you know, remain allied with terrorists, it's more important to give terrorists safe haven, it's more important to do all the nasty things that they've been doing that we don't like than it is to have a good relationship with the United States", he alleged.

'If so, that's a choice that they will make and then we will make choices based on their choice, ' he warned.
