Immigration News

High level US-Pak talks to break a diplomatic deadlock have ended in failure after Washington refused to tender an apology to Pakistan over a recent cross-border raid as it was angered by the recent spurt in Taliban attacks on Afghan capital Kabul.While Obama administration believes the stalemate would not be resolved quickly.

According to New York Times, US special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan Marc Grossman left the Pakistani capital on Friday night with no agreement.

Pakistan had demanded an unconditional apology from the US over the incident, but the talks ended in failure, as the White House, “angered by the recent spectacular Taliban attacks in Afghanistan, refuses to apologise.

While Pakistani officials remained adamant that in the absence of an apology, they cannot reopen NATO supply routes into Afghanistan that have been closed since November.

The United States and Pakistan disagree about the precise sequence of events in the deadliest single cross-border attack of the 10-year war in Afghanistan.

Pakistan denies shooting first, and has accused the Americans of an intentional attack on its troops.

The United States, in turn, is withholding from Pakistan between $1.18 billion and $3 billion (2.26 billion euros) of promised military aid.
