ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Army Chief General Qamar Javaid Bajwa has apprised the US envoy of Pakistan’s reservations over giving India an enhanced role in Afghanistan.

He also reiterated that Pakistan does not need financial assistance from Washington, but simply its trust and acknowledgement for the sacrifices rendered in the fight against terrorism.

The envoy, David Hale, visited General Headquarters in Rawalpindi on Wednesday to brief General Qamar Javed Bajwa about the new US strategy for Afghanistan and South Asia.

In his speech, President Trump targeted Pakistan for ‘not doing enough’ to deal with certain militant outfits including the Afghan Taliban. 

Trump said Pakistan had to change that approach or face the consequences.
