US will watch Pakistan's choices over new Afghan policy

The US will "watch" Pakistan's choices on President Donald Trump's new Afghan and South Asia strategy to combat terrorism in its tracks, Defence Secretary Jim Mattis has said.

At the same time, Mattis also lauded India's commitment towards the development in Afghanistan.

Trump, while announcing the new strategy for Afghanistan, had accused Pakistan of harbouring "agents of chaos" and providing safe havens to militant groups waging an insurgency against the US-backed government .. 

Pakistan has opposed Trump's Afghan and South Asia policy, saying it ignored the country's sacrifices in the war against terrorism.

But, Mattis during a visit to Kabul said the new strategy was "not exclusive of someone".
