Take ‘firm’ and ‘immediate’ action: PM Modi to Sharif on Pathankot attack

News24 Bureau

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today strongly emphasized Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif to take “firm” and “immediate” action against the individuals and organizations responsible for and linked to the Pathankot terror attack, a government press release said.

 

Mr. Sharif telephoned Narendra Modi at 3:45 pm to condemn attack on the airbase in Pathankot. He expressed grief over the incident and promised full cooperation from NSA chief Nasser Janjua and foreign affairs adviser Sartaj Aziz.

 

While assuring PM Modi that his government would take prompt and decisive action against the terrorists, Sharif requested him to continue with the roadmap of peace that India and Pakistan agreed on.

 

Meanwhile, Indian government has provided Pakistan with substantial “specific and actionable” information in this regard and has said that it is in their hands to take actions against the terrorist.

The United Jihad Council (UJC), a group of over 15 militant organizations in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), on Monday claimed responsibility for the terror attack in Punjab: one which left 14 people dead.

 

Now that India has wielded Pakistan with enough evidence and the platform is all set, it will be crucial how the Pakistani court interprets the tensed situation.
