US to give Pakistan chance to strike terrorist targets: Tillerson

WASHINGTON, Nov 01 (INP): US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has informed the Congress that Pakistan is willing to target terrorists if provided information and Washington plans to give Islamabad the opportunity to prove it.

At a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Monday night, American lawmakers also warned that if the United States insisted on having the option of first strike against a nuclear-armed nation, it could send a wrong signal to other nations with nuclear weapons. They particularly mentioned India and Pakistan, two nuclear nations with strained relations.
