US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley has said, the UN Security Council should step up pressure on Pakistan to change its behaviour.
Briefing reporters after returning from a UN Security Council visit to Afghanistan, she said, the Afghan government has asked the 15-member powerful wing of the world body to step up pressure on Pakistan. She said, the Afghan government is starting to see the Taliban concede.
The Kabul visit of UN Security Council members came ahead of the Kabul Process meeting next month where the Afghan government is expected to present its strategy for reaching a settlement with the armed opposition.
Pakistan is accused of supporting the Taliban and various militant groups in Afghanistan.
