Upper House of the Parliament or Meshrano Jirga says that America’s interest in Pakistan would further strengthen terrorists.

Pakistan’s Chief of Army General Raheel Sharif is scheduled to pay a state visit to the United States in coming days and besides other issues he will also discuss Afghanistan’s security with US officials.

International Relations Commission of Meshrano Jirga has expressed concern over his visit.

Senators have said that US’s interest in Pakistan would further strengthen terrorists and result in boost of fighting in Afghanistan.

International Relations Committee of parliament urged American officials and Senate on Monday to abide by their commitments to Afghanistan.

A statement released by the commission states that the US should prevent support to terrorists by Pakistan and not allow further bloodshed of innocent Afghans.

General Raheel Sharif will visit the United States from 15-20 November and hold talks with military and political leadership on different issues including Afghanistan’s security and stalled peace talks with Taliban.
