Nikki Haley, the US Ambassador to the UN, has said India can help the US to keep an eye on Pakistan as President Donald Trump has taken tougher approach to Islamabad nurturing terrorists. Noting that Trump recently announced a new strategy for combating terrorism in Afghanistan and South Asia, Haley said “One of the pillars of that strategy is the development of America’s strategic partnership with India.”

Nikki Haley said overriding interest of America in Afghanistan and throughout South Asia are to eliminate terrorist safe havens that threaten the US. And to keep nuclear weapons out of the hands of terrorists, the US will use all the elements of its national power economic diplomatic and military to pursue these goals.

In her address to an event organised by US India Friendship Council, Haley said Trump has taken a tougher approach to Pakistan harbouring terrorists. She said the US cannot tolerate Pakistan or any other government giving safe haven to terrorists who target Americans.
