Mike Pence addressed 500 troops in Bagram on Thursday, four months after President Trump unveiled his strategy for Afghanistan.
Pakistan has hit back saying ‘allies do not put each other on notice’ urging that the focus instead be on creating ‘peace and reconciliation’.
But relations between the two countries have deteriorated, with the US accusing Pakistan of providing safe havens for terrorist groups, a charge Pakistan strongly denies.
With relations between the two countries hitting a new low, where does it go from here?
