The US will not succeed in Afghanistan without the support and cooperation of Pakistan, which has been a source of "significant challenges" in the war-torn country, President Donald Trump's nominee for the American ambassador to Afghanistan has told lawmakers.

A U.S. drone strike has killed three people in the tribal area of Pakistan near the Afghanistan border.

"The drone fired two missiles on the house used by the Haqqani network in Kurram Agency, a semi-autonomous tribal region bordering Afghanistan, the agency's Senior Administrator, " Baseer Wazir, said. "It's not in anyone's interest for Afghanistan to remain a sink hole of violence and a safe haven for extreme terrorism", he said.

Officials privy to the meeting said the Pakistani side maintained that terrorists were the common enemies of both countries and they should jointly take action against them.

Pakistani leaders rejected the charges as an attempt to "scapegoat" their country for "failures" of USA -led efforts to secure and stabilize Afghanistan. The border crossing was also closed for all types of traffic.
