In September Mattis visited New Delhi and his Indian counterpart had said that India has no intention to send its troops to Afghanistan and that the country was increasing economic relations with Afghanistan to assist the war-torn country. However, Mattis was told that Pakistan would be ready to take action against any group of militants on the receipt of actionable intelligence from the United States side.

US Defence Secretary James Mattis, during his maiden visit to Pakistan yesterday, asked Islamabad to "redouble" its efforts to confront militants operating from its soil, reaffirming Washington's concern that Islamabad has not done enough to combat terrorism.

He said that the U.S. had assured Pakistan that there will be no military intervention by India in Afghanistan.

"In the absence of the Pakistanis achieving that, we're going to do everything we can to make sure that safe haven no longer exists", said Pompeo.

During his Pakistan visit, Mattis is expected to meet Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Army Chief Qamar Javed Bajwa. Any foreign action on Pakistani soil is not acceptable, Mattis was told.

Pakistan has offered conditional support to help to put a full stop to the cross-border attacks in Kabul by the militants using the Pakistani territory.

Pakistan and the US have been at odds over Pakistan's counter-terrorism strategies near the Afghan border and, hence, the US has no plans of lifting the freeze on coalition funds for Pakistan, US officials stated on Tuesday. "I believe that we work hard on finding the common ground, and then we work together, so that's the approach I want to take".

Pakistan has repeatedly expressed its serious concerns regarding India's role in Afghanistan to the USA and Afghan leadership, according to reports.

Earlier, while talking to The News, a State Department spokesperson said that the U.S. had made clear its expectation for decisive action against terrorist and militant groups that operate from Pakistani soil.

Both sides, the sources added, agreed to take Afghan President Ashraf Ghani into confidence to establish peace in Afghanistan.

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has flatly rejected the U.S. demand for joint operations against militants on the former's soil in the latest round of "inconclusive" talks between the two countries held this week, diplomatic sources told The News.
