Pakistan, Afghanistan face shared threat from terrorist networks: US State Department

WASHINGTON, May 14 (APP): Pakistan and Afghanistan faced
shared threat from terrorist networks and the United States want to see improvement in their dialogue and cooperation against their common enemy, a US State Department Spokesman has said.

Asked to comment on a reported statement by the Afghan
President, US State Department Spokesman John Kirby said on
Friday the United States continues to see that Afghanistan and Pakistan still face a shared threat from terrorist networks.

Kirby’s remarks came a day after an editorial in the New
York Times blamed Pakistan for the mess in Afghanistan. Pakistan’s
ambassador to the United States, Jalil Abbas Jilani in a rejoinder
rejected the editorial saying that the collective failure of the international community was to be held responsible.
