The US delegation said that Pakistan's proposal could be handy in Afghan normalisation as the Trump administration was conducting a review of the regional situation including Pakistan, India, Afghanistan and other countries.

Foreign Affairs Advisor Sartaj Aziz on Saturday said Pakistan would intensify campaign to highlight "Indian brutalities in Kashmir to draw the attention of the world towards the gravity of the issue", according to Radio Pakistan.

The United States Senator John McCain on Sunday said U.S. wanted end to violence in Kashmir, ARY News reported.

The move instantly invited ire from Islamabad, which rejected the USA decision, saying the 70-year-old indigenous struggle of Kashmiris in Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir remains legitimate.

John Podesta Testifies on Russia Probe
Committee members declined to comment on the discussion to reporters as they left the panel's secure hearing room. For his part, Stone said he wanted to testify to counter John Podesta's testimony from earlier in the day.

Senator Lindsey Graham, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator David Perdue and Senator Sheldon Whitehouse were among other members of the US delegation.

Aziz also apprised the US Senate delegation about Pakistan's "success" in combating terrorism and said that the "terrorist networks have been dismantled, their sanctuaries eliminated under the overarching National Action Plan".

Experts on America's longest war say militant safe havens in Pakistan have allowed Taliban-linked insurgents a place to plot attacks in Afghanistan and regroup after ground offensives.

Islamabad had brokered a landmark peace dialogue between the Afghan government and the Taliban near Islamabad in July 2015, but the leak of news of the death of the Taliban's founding supreme leader Mullah Omer, and the subsequent death of his successor Mullah Akhtar Mansur in a USA drone strike in 2016, damaged the already fragile trust between the two sides.

"He said that continued engagement with Pakistan, a close friend and ally of the United States, was important, it said". The advisor made it clear that Pakistan wanted all issues with India to be resolved through talks including the Kashmir issue.

The Pakistani statement quoted McCain, who heads Senate Armed Services Committee, as appreciating contributions and sacrifices by Islamabad in the fight against terrorism, and underscored the importance of continued engagement between the two countries. "The U.S. will continue to pursue its [traditional] Kashmir policy", McCain was quoted as saying by state-run Pakistan Television, citing Foreign Ministry officials.

During the meeting, Aziz said that the strategic partnership between Pakistan and the United States is of utmost importance to achieve peace and stability in the region.

The adviser also raised concern over the gross human rights violations by the Indian security forces in Kashmir and worldwide community's silence over the reign of terror unleashed by India on innocent and unarmed Kashmiris.
