Replying to a question regarding political parties have launched a campaign against Nawaz Sharif to resign after the accusations of corruption in Panama Papers, Kirby said these are decisions that the Pakistani people have to make, and we’ve talked about this before.

In an answer to another question Kirby stated that Pakistan’s government should conduct indiscriminate action against all terrorist groups including Haqqani, Al-Qaeda and Lashkar-e-Tayyaba, adding that the country has repeatedly said it’s not going to discriminate against a terrorist group regardless of their agenda or affiliation.
