US Must Make Clear To Pak Terror Safe Havens Won’t Be Tolerated’


President Donald Trump’s nominee for US Under Secretary of Defence for Policy John C Rood has expressed the view that the United States must make it clear to Pakistan that its continuing safe havens for terrorists will not be tolerated.
