In contrast to previous visits by top-ranking U.S. officials, Pakistan has been clearly told this time to shut down support to terror groups, Indian officials told The Hindu on the visit of U.S Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

During his interaction with the press after meeting External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Mr. Tillerson said the U.S. had called for a special mechanism with Pakistan to share “not just information but action taken” against terror groups.

“We have extended to Pakistan certain conditions and expectations we have … in particular with regard to these organisations, and the leaders of these organisations,” Mr. Tillerson said.

The officials said Mr. Tillerson was even more candid during his meetings in Delhi, and they were optimistic that the Pakistani government had got a stern message.

“There were no half-messages, as in the past. [The Trump administration] is behaving differently from other U.S. administrations, and we must recognise that,” said a senior official present at the meetings between Mr. Tillerson and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Ms. Swaraj and National Security Adviser Ajit Doval here on Wednesday.
