WASHINGTON (92 News) - US State Department Spokesperson Mathew Miller on Tuesday said that they support Pakistan’s efforts to combat terrorism and ensure the safety and security of its citizens in a manner that promotes the rule of law and protection of human rights.

Addressing a weekly briefing, he said that the Pakistani people have suffered tremendously from terrorist attacks. “No country should have to suffer such acts of terror. The United States and Pakistan have a shared interest in combating threats to regional security. Our partnership with Pakistan on security issues includes our high-level counterterrorism dialogue, including funding robust counterterrorism capacity-building programs and supporting a series of US-Pakistan military-to-military engagements,” he added.

However, Mathew Miller refused to comment on a question about Chinese investment projects in Pakistan.
