Talking about Afghan issue, the foreign minister said that Pakistan wanted rule of peace in Afghanistan as "We are still suffering very badly from the Afghan war".

Last week, the commander of United States forces in Afghanistan, General John Nicholson, said Islamabad had not carried out the "clear" demands that had been made by Washington.

Mattis met prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and military chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa during his brief stopover in the capital Islamabad.

US Defence Secretary James Mattis, during his maiden visit to Pakistan yesterday, asked Islamabad to "redouble" its efforts to confront militants operating from its soil, reaffirming Washington's concern that Islamabad has not done enough to combat terrorism.

Lt Col Michael Andrews, a Pentagon spokesman, said payments to Pakistan from the fund are still frozen, and that "Secretary Mattis has not yet made a decision on the certification required" by Congress to release the $400 million in counter-terrorism funds for Pakistan in fiscal 2017.
