It added that Bajwa told Votel Pakistan was fully aware of the US concerns regarding activities of Afghan nationals in Pakistan and is already undertaking several operations against militants.

Pakistani Defense Minister Khurram Dastgir Khan went so far as to tell reporters this week that Pakistan would cease "a wide field of intelligence cooperation and defense cooperation" with the U.S. He did not elaborate.

"Pakistan is fully aware of USA concerns on activities of Afghan nationals in Pakistan and we are already undertaking multiple actions through Operation Raddul Fasaad to deny any residual capacity to terrorists of all hue and colour for which return of Afghan refugees is an essential prerequisite", Gen Bajwa was quoted as having told Gen Votel.

The US won't conduct unilateral anti-terror operations in Pakistan depsite President Donald Trump suspending American military aid and criticising Islamabad for "lies and deceit", a top American military commander has assured the Army Chief, Gen Qamar Bajwa.

It said Bajwa, however, assured Votel that Pakistan would continue its counter-terrorism efforts even without USA financial support in accordance with the Islamic nation's security interests.

Pakistan was initially fearful that Trump would launch a strike in Pakistan - similar to the secret 2011 raid that captured Osama bin Laden outside Islamabad - and put its forces on alert the day the aid suspension was announced.

Bajwa made the comments to Votel earlier this week during a phone call, a spokesman for Pakistan's military said in a statement on Friday. Also in question is nearly $1 billion of USA military equipment that has allowed Pakistan access to advanced military technology.

According to the Pakistani military, the Chief of the Army Staff reiterated that Pakistan will not seek resumption of aid but expect honourable recognition of our contributions, sacrifices and unwavering resolve in fight against terrorism for peace and stability in the region. "No more!" he wrote in his New Year's Day tweet, referring to Pakistan.

"I am hopeful that Pakistan will do the right thing and turn over the terrorists and honor their commitment", said Steven Goldstein, undersecretary of State for public diplomacy and public affairs.

The downward spiral of US-Pakistani relations reminds people of what happened back in 2011 when North Atlantic Treaty Organisation killed 28 Pakistani troops and Islamabad responded by stopping the bloc's access to Afghanistan, forcing it rely on the much longer and costlier multimodal "Lapis Lazuli" corridor across the Caucasus and Central Asia.
