During his visit yesterday, Pence held meetings with top Afghan leadership to hear from them the progress on the implementation of Trump’s new South Asia Policy.”As the President said, so I say now: Pakistan has much to gain from partnering with the US, and Pakistan has much to lose by continuing to harbour criminals and terrorists,” the vice president said, issuing another stern warning to Pakistan.

Trump, he said, has unleashed the full range of American military might.”We’ve lifted the restrictions that limited the effectiveness of our armed forces, so you can, as the President has said, fully and swiftly wage battle against the enemy,” Pence said.Trump has empowered battlefield commanders with the freedom and flexibility they need to win, Pence said, adding the president’s new strategy is already bearing fruit all across Afghanistan.
