US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has said he intends to work hard to find common ground with Pakistan in the fight against terrorism, which is necessary to restore the level of stability in South Asia to allow economic development. We are still suffering very badly from the Afghan war.
"He said that Pakistan has done much more than its due share despite capacity constraints but shall remain committed for peace as a responsible member of worldwide community", a statement by the military wing of the Pakistani military said.
The prime minister vowed that Pakistan, in its national interest, would continue to conduct intelligence based operations all over the country to consolidate the gains achieved in the last four years, reiterating that there are no safe havens in Pakistan and the entire nation was committed to its resolve on eradicating terrorism in all forms.

"The COAS took the forum on board about his military diplomacy through his recent visits overseas and interaction with foreign dignitaries visiting Pakistan", according to a statement released by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR). However sources said the Pakistani leadership ruled out the possibility of the same. "He assured that United States is ready to play its role in addressing Pakistan's legitimate concerns, saying that his aim is not to make demands but find common grounds to work together".

A statement released later on Monday from Abbasi's office echoed the term "common ground", and said Mattis had emphasised he was "keenly aware" of the thousands of lives Pakistan has lost in its long battle with militancy.
Mattis is the first top American official to visit Pakistan after the completion of the first 100 days of the US' new South Asia strategy unveiled by Trump on August 21.
Mattis' brief visit to Islamabad comes a week after a hardline Pakistani Islamist group called off nationwide protests after the government met its demand that a minister accused of blasphemy resign.
