Sustainable peace would restore, if words come into effect
 In his first tweet in New Year, President Donald Trump said the United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools.
They (Pakistanis) give safe havens to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more! 
The U.S. announced its new strategy on Afghanistan and South Asia on last August—a move unprecedently criticized Pakistan and it has been accused of giving safe havens to terrorist groups instead of cooperation with international community, U.S. and the government of Afghanistan in war on terror.  
Criticizing Pakistan over supporting terrorist factions that are trying to kill our people, President Trump said we have given billions of dollars to Pakistan, but instead, they have given safe havens to terrorists we are fighting with. 
This situation must be changed and it would be immediately practiced, he said. 
Earlier, a U.S. congress delegation during a visit to Pakistan had held a meeting with its officials and discussed Afghanistan’s situation.
After the meeting, the government of Pakistan in a statement stressed on paving the way between the government of Afghanistan and terrorist groups for peace negotiations.
Pakistan stressed on resuming Quadrilateral Cooperation Group (QCG) meeting between Afghanistan, Pakistan, China and the U.S.
The government of Pakistan is committed to help Afghanistan ensure sustainable peace. But unfortunately, Pak words have not been so far practiced. 
This is while the US has placed Pakistan in the list of those countries that have given safe havens to terrorists.
The US secretary of state in its annual report called Pakistan a terrorism-funding state, through which the terrorist groups organize their attacks in Afghanistan.
Although, Pakistan has always verbally promised to bring the Taliban and Haqqani network on negotiation table, but it has done nothing in practice yet. 
A number of Afghan experts appreciate the national unity government’s efforts to have forced the US to further exert pressure on Pakistan. 
However, this is not the first time Pakistan has played a double policy game with its alliances on fighting terrorism, but it has always disrespected and deceived the government of Afghanistan, regional and even the world countries. 
In fact, Pak people have also hated their government’s behavior in this regard.
Therefore, both countries’ people hope Pakistan to practice what it has promised so the people be the witness of ensuring a lasting peace in their countries.
