Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif remarked that the United States should learn from Pakistan’s experiences in the war against terrorism rather than threatening or blaming the country.
On US’s harsh statements after the United Nations vote on Jerusalem, Asif remarked on social media that “frustrations on diplomatic front in UN and war in Afghanistan reflected in US statements.”

Director General (DG) Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor responded to US Vice President Mike Pence’s statement on Friday saying that such statements by US officials can affect the war against terrorism.
Pence, during his surprise visit to Afghanistan earlier today, said; “Pakistan has much to gain from partnering with our efforts in Afghanistan. The days of shelter terrorists have gone. It has much to lose by continuing to harbour terrorists.”
Commenting further on US statements, Ghafoor said the Pakistan has responded to the US allegations on Foreign Office level, adding, “Such statements can affect the war against terrorism.”
