Trump: Border talks 'waste of time' if they don't include a wall

KONFRONTASI-With little time remaining to craft a deal over funding security operations on the US-Mexico border, a bipartisan group of politicians was to meet in a public work session on Wednesday even as President Donald Trump maintained a hard line on constructing a massive wall.

Congressional negotiators are up against a February 15 deadline for agreeing on funding through September 30 for several federal agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security and its border operations.

Realistically, Republican and Democratic legislators have little more than a week to settle differences and still give the full House of Representatives and Senate time to debate and vote on any deal.

A 35-day partial shutdown was triggered on December 22 when Trump refused to sign any funding bills that did not contain at least $5.7bn for a wall along the southwestern US border.

Throughout the shutdown - the longest of its type in US history - polls consistently found that most Americans blamed Trump.

Faced with steadfast opposition in the Democratic-majority House, Trump relented on Friday, agreeing to re-open federal agencies temporarily even though he did not get his $5.7bn request. In return, Congress agreed to form a special panel to negotiate a border security deal.

Trump has threatened a resumption of the record-long shutdown if the panel fails to find common ground or produces a plan he does not like.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Trump warned: "If the committee of Republicans and Democrats now meeting on Border Security is not discussing or contemplating a Wall or Physical Barrier, they are Wasting their time!"

Physical barriers have long been installed on parts of the border to keep out illegal drugs and undocumented immigrants and more are under construction.

It was unclear whether Trump, who views the current arrangement as insufficient, would accept a simple continuation of such installations.

Lindsey Graham urges Trump to meet Pakistan PM Khan

KONFRONTASI-Senior US Senator Lindsey Graham has urged President Donald Trump to meet Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, as intense contacts between the two countries continue over negotiations to end the 17-year war with the Taliban in neighbouring Afghanistan.

Graham spoke to reporters in the Pakistani capital Islamabad on Sunday, capping off days of meetings that saw the top US envoy on Afghan reconciliation and its commander of military forces in the region also visit the South Asian country.

"I've seen things change here and all in a positive direction," said Graham, a senior member of the powerful Senate Armed Services Committee who has visited Pakistan dozens of times in recent years.

Khan, who came to power after a general election last year, has long stated his support for a peace agreement in Afghanistan to end hostilities there.

Trump would be "far more enthusiastic about the region than he is today" if he met Khan, said Graham, who held talks with the prime minister earlier on Sunday.

"With Prime Minister Khan we have a unique opportunity to change our relationship," he said.

The relationship, he said, was previously "transactional", but should be replaced with a "strategic partnership".
