Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi says his country is ready for joint patrols and establishment of joint posts on the Durand Line with Afghanistan, a media report said on Wednesday.

Regarding the United States pressures, PM Abbasi said Islamabad has not received any specific demands from United States, promising that the country would take steps regarding any information they receive.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi denied the existence of militant sanctuaries in a meeting with reporters on Tuesday, saying Pakistan is "fighting agents of chaos".

Abbasi urged the United States to show more appreciation for Pakistan's losses in war on terror and its role in hosting 3.5 million Afghan refugees.

"We have not received any list of measures", he said.

"We have nothing to hide, as a general rule you do not punish allies", Abbasi said when asked about USA plans to get tough on Pakistan and cutting billions of dollars worth of military and financial aid.

Trump accused Pakistan in an August 21 speech of continuing to provide safe haven to terrorist groups, such as the Haqqani Network, and allowing them to use its soil to attack troops in Afghanistan, a charge that Islamabad denies. "We are open (with the US)".

He said Pakistan had suffered massively due to instability in Afghanistan and believed that the solution should be Afghan-led and Afghan-owned.

He said that Pakistan had defeated the menace of terrorism, asking the Pakistan-based foreign correspondents to visit Miramshah and see for themselves how Pakistan's military had cleared the area by offering sacrifices. Afghanistan's government is slowly losing its grip with the Taliban now controlling or contests about 40 percent of the country, which US officials say couldn't be possible without help from Pakistan's military. Pakistan is rightly taking friendly countries' leadership into confidence in the wake of Trump statement.
