New Delhi :  

Pakistan has discarded America’s South Asia policy and United States President Donald Trump's allegations of Pakistan backed terrorism.

The National Assembly on Wednesday unanimously adopted a resolution in this regard and dismissed Donald Trump's new South Asia policy and assertions of Islamabad supporting terrorism.

Pakistan's Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif presented the resolution against the new US policy on South Asia during the session chaired by Speaker Ayaz Sadiq.

He said the National Assembly rejects Trump's recent policy statement as well as America's top general in Afghanistan General John Nicholson's claims regarding the presence of Taliban in Quetta and Peshawar.

"The House denounces the complete disregard of Pakistan's sacrifices by the US," Geo News quoted Asif as saying, adding that the National Assembly stands with the armed forces of Pakistan in their fight against terrorism.

Trump, while announcing his south Asia policy earlier this month, described Pakistan as a country that continues to offer safe haven to "agents of chaos."

"We can no longer be silent about Pakistan's safe havens for terrorist organisations," Trump said.
