Pakistan apprises U.S. to address concerns to move forward: FO

US terms turbulence in ties temporary 'Betrayed' Pakistan army chief won't ask for further US aid

Dr Faisal said Islamabad has also apprised Washington to help resolve the matter of Afghan refugees.

He said that Pakistan is facing serious problems from the elements carrying out attacking from Afghanistan's soil.

This gave rise to a growing choir of voices in Pakistan who are urging the government to suspend the US' transit rights through their territory en route to Afghanistan, effectively dealing a major blow to Trump's mini-surge there, while others have said that Islamabad should massively raise its transit fees instead in order to recoup its losses.

The dialogue comes a week after the U.S announced its suspension of security assistance to Pakistan for failing to take "decisive action" against Taliban militants targeting US personnel in neighboring Afghanistan.

Spokesman Colonel John Thomas said Centcom is in "continuous communication" with the Pakistan military, including recurring conversations between Votel and Bajwa.

It said both generals spoke of the need for continued cooperation in the war on terror.

On Friday, Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa told US Central Command Chief General Joseph Votel during a telephone call that Pakistan "felt betrayed" by criticism over its efforts in the war on terror.

General Votel, who is overseeing the USA campaign in Afghanistan, apprised General Bajwa about the U.S. decision regarding the security assistance and Coalition Support Fund.

Bajwa responded that Pakistan is fully aware of concerns laid out by the United States in relation to the terrorist activities of Afghan nationals in Pakistan, and his country is already engaged in several operations against those militants, AP reports. It added that Bajwa told Votel Pakistan was fully aware of the US concerns regarding activities of Afghan nationals in Pakistan and is already undertaking several operations against militants.

He also told the American general that that the "entire Pakistani nation felt betrayed" over the U.S. statements, but insisted Pakistan would continue to support peace efforts in the region despite being made a "scapegoat".

"The General said that USA values Pakistan's role towards war on terror and expected that on-going turbulence remains a temporary phase", the statement said.

Pakistan has been a key ally of the United States in war on terror since the September 11, 2001 attacks in the USA, but relations have been strained between the two sides since Trump accused Islamabad of harboring terrorists.
