WASHINGTON - Pakistan has not seeked the restoration of the security aid cum pending funds with US on account of coalition support fund,sources have revealed.

On the other hand the US has also not taken any decision to revoke the suspension of aid to Pakistan until it sees substantial progress against terrorists and their safe havens.

Trump administration has told Islamabad as top officials of the two countries met to try to reset their strained ties.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Advisor John Bolton, during their separate meetings with Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, are understood to have told him that in its assessment, the US does not see any changes on the ground when it comes to taking action against terrorists operating from the Pakistani soil.

The Trump administration also wants Pakistan to bring them to the negotiating table to end the nearly 17-year-long strife.

The meeting between Qureshi and Pompeo is understood to have lasted for 20 minutes at the Foggy Bottom headquarters of the State Department. The White House normally does not issue a readout of the meeting that its National Security Advisor has with foreign leaders.
