Tillerson's three-day India visit from Tuesday

Tillerson's three-day India visit from Tuesday

Tillerson is on a five-nation visit from October 20-27, including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Pakistan and Switzerland, according to the US State Department. "And we are looking forward to moving ahead with the USA and building a tremendous relationship", added Abbasi, who sat next to Bajwa.

At the outset of the meeting, the Prime Minister said that Pakistan is committed to the eradication of terrorism from the country.

Ghani said the new South Asia strategy announced by the Trump Administration was a "game changer" as it recommends multi- dimensional condition-based approach for the region.

Secretary Tillerson's Afghanistan trip was kept a secret due to security concerns, especially after an attack last month on Kabul airport during a visit by U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis.

United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, ahead of his maiden visit to Pakistan on Tuesday, suggested that he will tell the hosts to cease to provide safe havens to terror groups and terrorists on its soil to better bilateral relations with America.

It follows on the heels of an unannounced stop in Afghanistan Monday, where Tillerson reiterated America's commitment to the country and warned that Washington has made "very specific requests" of Pakistan over militancy.

It added: " Sherald challenges stereotypes and probes notions of identity through her life-size paintings of African Americans". Kehinde Wiley is genius artist known for black street culture with European classical paintings.

The US-Pakistan relationship has waxed and waned dramatically since Trump took office in January. "External Affairs Minister will call on the visiting dignitary".

Following the August speech, Tillerson cautioned Pakistan that it could lose its status as a privileged military ally if it continued providing support to Afghan militant groups.

"The perception here is whatever they do, it is not going to please the Americans", Hussain told AFP.

A photo of the US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani is raising questions after reports that it has been digitally manipulated.

While both photos showed the two men sitting in a windowless room, the image released by Afghanistan has removed the military-style digital clock and fire alarm above the two men-both of which are pictured in the US copy.
