Vital that Pakistan joins fight against terrorism, Kerry.

NEW DELHI, Dhu-AlQa'dah 27, 1437, Aug 30, 2016, SPA -- U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry urged Pakistan on Tuesday to join other nations in tackling terrorism, and said Islamabad should not feel isolated by planned trilateral talks between the United States, India and Afghanistan, Reuters reported. "It is vital that Pakistan join with other nations in fighting this challenge," Kerry told a news conference, saying he had been in touch with Pakistan's civilian and military leaders on terrorism and noting progress in counter-terrorism operations in the west of the country. "My hope is that Pakistan as a country is not isolated by this, but is encouraged by this," Kerry said, referring to the planned U.S.-India-Afghan talks that would be held at the annual U.N. meetings in New York. --SPA 17:28 LOCAL TIME 14:28 GMT
