Abbasi, who was on a personal trip to see his ailing sister in the US, met Pence at the US Naval Observatory, the vice president's official residence.

The meeting that lasted for 30-minute was reportedly held on Pakistan's request where only Michael Cutrone, special adviser to Vice President Pence for South Asian Affairs, was present as a note-taker. The US intel had said that terrorist groups based in Pakistan would continue to use their sanctuaries and carry out more attacks on US forces.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi assured Mr Pence of Pakistan's "sincere commitment" to efforts for peace in Afghanistan and also underlined "Pakistan's successes" in the war against terrorism, Dawn News reported, citing the sources. The Afghan Embassy in the United States had claimed that the attack was planned by Pakistan. "The prime minister assured the USA leader that no other state wants peace in Afghanistan more than Pakistan does, as it will be a direct beneficiary of this peace", the newspaper quoted an unidentified official as saying.
