US Designates Three Pakistani-Based Militants As 'Global Terrorists'

In an interview with Bloomberg published on Thursday, Asif said the fencing of Pak-Afghan border "won't cost [the US] much".

He urged the United States to assist with the fence, and repatriation of Afghan refugees.

The foreign minister insisted that a fenced border was in the "mutual interest" of both Pakistan and Afghanistan.

He claimed that as many as 700,000 people were crossing the border unchecked each day which posed a risk to both countries.

Dilawar Khan Nadir Khan, another leader at the madrassa, is said to have relayed Aminullah's messages, transferred funds and facilitated his travel in Pakistan and the Gulf.

When asked about Trump's allegations, Asif said that Pakistan wanted better ties with the U.S.

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani has said Pakistan is waging an "undeclared war of aggression" against his nation.

Iqbal said Pakistan was on the path of progress because of peace in the country.

Terming the camps breeding grounds for insurgency, the foreign minister said the global fraternity must do more to assist Pakistan with shouldering the burden of repatriation.

Qaiser Khan Afridi, a spokesman for the UN Refugee Agency in Islamabad, said there were funding shortages for Afghan refugees as resources have been diverted to other places like Syria and Iraq.

The Trump administration imposed sanctions Wednesday on three individuals linked to Pakistan-based militant networks as it pushes Islamabad to crack down on perpetrators of attacks on Afghanistan.

"The vehicle was completed destroyed", an intelligence official told the daily, adding that there were at least three reported drone strikes on the Pakistan-Afghan border in the last 24 hours.

Pakistan has also denied repeated allegations by the U.S. that Pakistan is providing safe havens to terrorists who use the country's land to launch cross-border attacks into Afghanistan.

"Any free movement from their side to our side, or our side to their side, can breed mistrust and obviously some terrorist activity on our side or on their soil", he said.
