Defence ties with US to continue even after 2014 Afghanistan Withdrawal

In the 22nd meeting of the US-Pakistan Defence Consultative Group held at Washington on Friday, 22 November 2013, both Pakistan and the United States agreed to continue a strong defence partnership and bilateral counter-terrorism cooperation even after the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan next year.

A joint statement issued after the meeting also recognised Pakistan’s support by the USA for “promoting reconciliation”, a reference to Islamabad’s efforts for encouraging talks between Taliban leaders and Afghan officials.

“The United States recognised Pakistan’s success in its counter-terrorism campaign this year, as well as Pakistan’s broader efforts to achieve internal security,” the statement said.
