Last month, the Trump administration almost $2 billion in security assistance to Pakistan because of its inability to take actions against terror groups.

The Pentagon and Kabul have long accused Pakistan of harboring terrorists, something that Islamabad denies.

Dilawar, another leader at the madrassa, is said to have relayed Aminullah's messages, transferred funds and facilitated his travel in Pakistan and the Gulf.

"Any free movement from their side to our side, or our side to their side, can breed mistrust and obviously some terrorist activity on our side or on their soil", he said.

Addressing scholars and researchers at the Woodrow Wilson think tank in Washington on Tuesday he said this was a "credible and doabe way forward" to address concerns about militants crossing over borders with impunity that has bedevilled peace in the region.

Amir Shah reported from Kabul, Afghanistan.

Despite more than $8.5 billion in US taxpayer funds spent on counternarcotics activities in Afghanistan since the war began, the Muslim-majority country remains the world's top supplier of opium and heroin.

On Jan 17, two extremists were killed in a U.S. drone strike on a location on both sides of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Notwithstanding the lack of funding, Asif predicts the Afghanistan-Pakistan fence will be constructed by 2019.

Sullivan told lawmakers that it was the assessment of the U.S. that Pakistan has not done enough to expel elements of the Taliban that have been operating in sanctuaries in Pakistan and easily able to cross the border into Afghanistan.

It was time for worldwide community to remember the plight of millions of Afghan refugees in Pakistan, who have been displaced due to decades of violence. Asif urged the United States to help Islamabad sent the Afghan refugees back to their native land.

The move was initiated since the U.S. is unhappy with Pakistan's approach to terrorists on home soil.

They must return to their homes honorably.

On Friday, Karzai met with Pakistani officials about a week after Afghan President Ashraf Ghani insisted that the " centre of Taliban terrorism is in Pakistan" and demanded that authorities in the neighbouring country "show some concrete action to rid their territory of insurgents". Some border disputes between the two neighbors have triggered armed clashes.

The strike took place in the mountainous Barmal district of Paktia province, where fighters from both the Haqqani network and Pakistan's Tehrik-e-Taliban militant group are believed to operate.

"The use of terrorism has no place in a rules-based global system".
