Statement: US national security adviser arrives s Kabul

The US advisor started the Pakistan visit after his first trip to Afghanistan where he met top Afghan leaders and assured them support of the Trump administration.

Indian TV stations broadcast images of McMaster and Modi, each flanked by officials, sitting together at Modi's home in the Indian capital.

The adviser's visit was the first direct high-level interaction between Pakistan and the United States since the new administration assumed charge in Washington.

However, official statements on Monday gave little indication of whether the Trump administration would adopt a new, tougher policy on Pakistan, as some Afghan and Indian officials hope. They also provide air support to ground troops and operate a separate counter-terrorism unit that targets IS, al-Qaida and other militant groups.

McMaster arrived in Delhi from Kabul and Islamabad as part of his "regional consultations".

Mc Master is visiting India after holding discussions with the leadership of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Ghani told McMaster that "terrorism is a serious issue for the security of the world and the region" and that if serious steps are not taken, it would affect "generations" of people, according to the statement.

United Airlines to save evidence in dragged passenger case
In an unrelated incident, a United passenger complained that a scorpion stung him during a flight from Texas, also on Sunday. It was initially believed that Dr Dao was bumped off the flight due to overbooking by the airline.

"In recent years, at a period of our maximum effort, we didn't have as reliable a partner in the Afghan government as we would've liked", McMaster said during an appearance on ABC's This Week.

Responding to Thursday's massive bomb attack by the USA military against the stronghold of Islamic State in the eastern Afghan province of Nangarhar, McMaster said the terrorist group threatens all civilized people and must be defeated.

During the meeting between Modi and McMaster, views were exchanged on how India and the U.S. can work together to effectively address the challenge of terrorism and to advance regional peace, security and stability, a PMO statement said.

US National Security Adviser HR McMaster, who is on a visit to India, today met Prime Minister Narendra Modi at 7, Lok Kalyan Marg in the presence of senior officials including NSA Ajit Doval and Foreign Secretary S Jaishanker.

During his meeting with McMaster, Sharif stated that his government has achieved an across-the-board consensus to combat extremism and terrorism, the statement said.

"The best way to pursue their interest in the country and elsewhere is through diplomacy not through the use of proxies and engaging violence", McMaster said.

The Pakistani side also shared its perspective on the "plight of Kashmiris" in India and the status of relations with New Delhi, the statement said. However, the figures released in April 2017 of security-related aid that the Trump administration has requested from the U.S. Congress for Pakistan indicate the U.S. government has not decreased its allocations for the upcoming year.
