Islamabad (Agencies): Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua on Tuesday informed the Senate Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs that the United States (US) had assured Pakistan that no group, including Indian spy agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), would be allowed to launch attacks on Pakistani soil from across the western border.
Participants of the Senate meeting, which was chaired by Nuzhat Sadiq, were also briefed by Janjua on Pakistan-US ties in general, local media reported.
The foreign secretary informed lawmakers that US officials had been briefed on RAW's activities in Afghanistan, as well as on the turbulent socio-political situation in Kashmir. She also stated that the US had been offered a mediatory role for better ties between between Pakistan and India.
Janjua also told senators that said Pakistan had rejected US objections to the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, after which US officials had "recognised" that their objections to development projects in "controversial areas" were incorrect.
The foreign secretary also said Islamabad had informed Washington that all areas of its territory had been cleared of terrorists. However, if the US provided actionable intelligence regarding the presence of terrorists in Pakistan, Islamabad would take immediate action, she said.
