The US Secretary of State has reportedly said Pakistan could lose control of its territory if it does not sever ties with the Haqqanis and other terrorists, according to the local Dawn News.
Tillerson has reportedly made the remarks during his conversation at a think tank earlier this week.
“Pakistan has allowed so many terrorist organisations to find safe haven within its territories, and these organisations are growing in size and influence, that at some point I have said to the leadership of Pakistan, you may be the target, and they turn their attention from Kabul and decide they like Islamabad as a target better,” he has warned.
The Afghan and US officials have long been insisting that the leadership councils of the Taliban and the notorious Haqqani terrorist network are based in the key cities of Pakistan where from they plan and coordinate attacks in Afghanistan.
The officials have long been criticizing Pakistan for its failure to act against the terror network although they have said that the country has take strict actions against the terror groups posing threat to the Pakistani government.
