Qamar Javed Bajwa, as well as the U.S. embassy team.Since the start of the war in Afghanistan, militants in Pakistan have crossed the mountainous and ill-defined border to wage attacks against U.S., Afghan and allied forces.The U.S., he said, has been very direct about what it expects Pakistan to do in the fight against the Taliban.
