NEW DELHI (92 News) – US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has on Wednesday while declaring India natural ally, again demanded Pakistan to take further steps against terrorists.

Addressing a joint press conference in New Delhi along with Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, he said that the US was worried that extremist groups were finding safe havens inside Pakistan, adding that this could lead to a threat to Pakistan’s own stability. It is not in anyone’s interests that the government of Pakistan be destabilized, he added.

Tillerson said the US wants to work with Pakistan positively and it would also benefit Pakistan.

The US Secretary of State went on to say that India has an important role in the newly announced US policy on Afghanistan, adding that Washington and New Delhi stand together in the fight against terrorism.

Speaking on the occasion, Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said that the US President Donald Trump’s Afghan policy would only succeed when Pakistan would take action against terrorists.
