Reaction of Pakistani media to US secy of state Tillerson’s tough talk on terrorism

Tillerson’s first trip to Pakistan after assuming office was extensively covered by the local media, with most dailies and TV channels speculating about the message the Pakistani leadership had been given and whether the visit would lead to improved relations between the two countries or a possible deterioration.

“Tillerson talks tough to ‘incredibly important’ Pakistan” was the headline on the front page of The Express Tribune while the influential Dawn newspaper headlined its report “Tillerson asks Islamabad to step up fight against terrorists”.

The Urdu daily Jang, Pakistan’s largest circulated paper, led its main story on a positive note: “Pakistan holds an important position for the US in the region.”

The newspaper said that while the American delegation made some demands from the Pakistani leadership, it was appreciative of the country’s role in fighting terrorism.
