  • Tillerson also stated that the United States wanted the Pakistan government to be stable

In a separate Senate hearing on Tuesday, the top United States military officer said he believed the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) had ties to militant groups. McCain said at the committee hearing. That's customary practice for administration witnesses testifying before congressional committees.

"We've been holding nominations. from the Pentagon to fill in those Pentagon jobs", said Sen. After Trump's new policy was announced, though, McCain applauded the president "for taking a big step in the right direction". We must be well-informed. Angus King whether the deal, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, was beneficial to the US, Mattis answered affirmatively.

United States defense secretary James Mattis went a step further and said that Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence+ even "appears to run its own policy". Several members expressed concern the USA was wading more deeply into a conflict at great expense without prospects for long-term success.

"Realign" is a shift in emphasis in advising Afghan forces to lower levels.

In response to another question from Fischer, Dunford said there will be long-term transformation of responsibilities to the Afghan air force.

"We have not, to this point, presented the Taliban with a conditions-based approach that extends the horizon out for our commitment, makes an enduring commitment and causes Taliban leadership, now, to approach their subordinates with that context", he said.

The US's new policy on South Asia will also be discussed. He indicated that after an effective military effort it eventually may be possible to reach a political settlement in Afghanistan that includes elements of the Taliban.

Last month, the top USA military officer said Iran was complying with the pact and warned that any American decision to walk away from it would make other nations less likely to enter into agreements with the United States.

India and Afghanistan have also been time and again charging their neighbour Pakistan with similar allegations.

But U.S. officials and analysts have long said Pakistan tolerates the presence of the Afghan Taliban and the allied Haqqani network, which are leading the insurgency against Afghan and U.S. forces.

"It is clear to that ISI has connections with the terrorist groups", Gen. Dunford said. Mr. Trump called the deal, which was created to curb Iran's nuclear weapons program, "an embarrassment to the United States" during a speech to the UN in September.

White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster has defended Trump's criticism of the deal, saying it had the "fatal flaw" of a 'sunset clause, ' under which some of the deal's restrictions on Iran's nuclear program expire from 2025.

But rather than heed the warning, Pakistan ramped up its histrionics, canceled the scheduled visit of two senior American officials to Islamabad, and demanded a high-level engagement with the U.S. to discuss the matter.

Mattis said he and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had been "in contact on this issue three times in the past 10 days".

"Restrictions that did not allow us to employ air power fully have been removed", Mattis said.
