NEW DELHI: Pakistan may immediately discontinue talks with US officials visiting there this month if they insist it "do more against terror"+ , reported a Pakistani newspaper, citing a "well placed source".

What's more, Pakistan "won't accept" any pressure to compromise on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) either, the source said to The Express Tribune newspaper.

US secretary of state Rex Tillerson and acting assistant secretary of state Alice Wells are expected to visit Islamabad this month for talks on the US's new Afghan policy, which has been met with extreme disfavour by Pakistan. Unveiling the new Afghan policy in August, US President Donald Trump savaged Pakistan for its terror safe havens and threatened to punish it if it didn't take decisive action against terror elements+ .

"If the US foreign secretary demands for more action from Islamabad then there will be only one answer from the government: 'No more do more'," the source told The Express Tribune newspaper.

The US is aware that Pakistan may discontinue talks, the Tribune said in its report, adding that Pakistan's foreign minister recently conveyed to the US that its new Afghan policy is "not acceptable" to Pakistan.

"During the visit, Pakistan will judge as to whether the US is serious to expand its relations with Pakistan. If the US foreign secretary gave any assurance of adopting a strategy to remove Pakistan's reservations on new Afghan policy, the federation will start next phase of talks with Trump authorities," the source reportedly said.


Islamabad will make its stance clear to the US and will let it know that "Pakistan has already offered countless sacrifices for elimination of terrorism", the report said.

Another touchy subject, that of CPEC, might also feature in these talks. The US has expressed its reservations about the project because it goes through disputed territory.


"Work on the CPEC project will continue come what may. Pakistan's priority is not the US but China because Pakistan's economic future is associated with the CPEC," the source said to the Tribune.

pak will talk and beg if US goes ahead with a leel bit of sanction and china wont care at all so is Russia who have their hands full at the moment.
Actually, china and Russia with the rest of the world will like to have a WEAKER pakistan, weaker economically, politically and strategically. So a bit of economic sanction of pakistan or its banking system will be good to manipulate pakistan and its assets much more efficiently.
the more pakistan is weaker and Dependant on china, china can strike even cheaper deals with pakistan on all fronts at huge huge interest rates which paki wont be able to pay and hedge it for cheap land be it agricultural land or resource and mineral rich land.

"Work on the CPEC project will continue come what may. Pakistan's priority is not the US but China because Pakistan's economic future is associated with the CPEC," the source said to the Tribune.
what pak doesnt see here is EVEN china says that poK is disputed and it needed to be solved bilaterally.china is not going to change their position on it.

In reality USA said the same thing to pak but from a vantage point of "DO MORE" to the terror factories operating inside poK, the pak occupied territory.
:D
even china is asking pakistan to DO MORE on terrorism!!!

when will these idiots of pakistan have a bit of common sense. a bunch of headless porks they are.:rofl::rofl:
