Khalilzad, an Afghan-born veteran USA diplomat, said the sides made progress on discussions about counter-terrorism assurances and a troop withdrawal from Afghanistan. "We believe that Kashmir requires immediate solution and both sides can contribute to resolve the long standing concerning situation in South Asia", he added. The minister praised Pakistan's role in Afghan peace process. He said if there were atrocities in the held valley, there will be reaction.

In June past year, the FATF had placed Pakistan on the grey list of countries whose domestic laws are considered weak to tackle the challenges of money laundering and terrorism financing.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Imran Khan also apprised Maas of post-Pulwama regional situation, and urged the worldwide community to take notice of grave human rights violations in Indian-held Kashmir.

"The fighting is still on", Mangal said, adding that the Taliban had overrun four posts and government reinforcement backed by air support had been sent to prevent the whole area from falling to the insurgents. PM Imran asked the German envoy to provide technical assistance to Pakistan in the fields of education and health.
