Pakistan take ‘sustained and irreversible’ actions against terrorists

United States has asked Pakistan to take “sustained and irreversible” actions against terrorist groups operating from its territory.


State Department Deputy Spokesperson Robert Palladino told this to reporters at his biweekly news conference in Washington yesterday.

The State Department statement came as Pakistan, under global pressure after the Pulwama terror attack and India’s air strikes against a JeM terrorist camp in Balakot on February 26, has started taking actions against some of the terrorist outfits and their leaders over the past few days.

Palladino said the US notes these steps and we continue to urge Pakistan to take sustained, irreversible actions against terrorist groups that will prevent future attacks and promote regional stability.

He said we reiterate our call for Pakistan to abide by its United Nations Security Council obligations to deny terrorists safe haven and block their entry to funds.
