Vastavam web: Asserting that President Donald Trump will no longer “tolerate” any support to militants, US National Security Adviser Gen H R McMaster today asked Pakistan to change its “paradoxical” policy of supporting selective terror groups. “The president has also made clear that he, that we need to see a change in in behaviour of those in the region, which includes those who are providing safe haven and support bases for the Taliban, Haqqani Network and others,” the National Security Advisor, McMaster, was quoted by MSNBC as saying.
He said that Trump is making clear that the US will no longer “tolerate” any support for the Taliban or related groups.”Of course, you know, a very paradoxical situation, right, where Pakistan is taking great losses. They have fought very hard against these groups, but they have done so really only selectively,” he said. McMaster said that Trump has lifted restrictions on US armed forces in Afghanistan. He also defended Trump’s strategy on winning the war in Afghanistan by giving unrestricted powers to the US military based in the war-torn country. “The president has said that, “He does not want to place restrictions on the military that undermine our ability to win battles in combat”.
