Expressing hope that Pakistan will achieve the goals ‘set-out’ by the Trump administration, United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reiterated the US demand that Islamabad will not provide safe havens to terrorists on the country’s western border.

Pompeo made the comments while answering a question during a press briefing at the State Department on Tuesday. “I had a chance to travel and meet the new leader of Pakistan not too many weeks ago now,” he said.

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday said Pakistan will act as a mediator in the war between Houthi rebels and Saudi Arabia-led alliance in Yemen.

Khan said so while addressing the nation in order to take the people into confidence over his recent visit to Saudi Arabia and Pakistan’s political and economic situation.
