Address Global Concerns On Cross-Border Terror: India, US To Pakistan

Pakistan assures US it will deal 'firmly' with terrorists

Pakistan assures US it will deal 'firmly' with terrorists

"There is enough evidence where one could speculate with confidence that the Balakot strike by the Indian Air Force was successful and Pakistan has not been able to prove otherwise since it has not enabled the worldwide media or national media to visit the site", he told ANI.

The development and successful test of the new weapon has been lauded by the Chief of Air Staff, Mujahid Anwar Khan, who praised the country's engineers and scientists for this achievement. He said if subjected to aggression by adversary, Pakistan would respond with full force.

A day after the Indian Air Force carried out air strikes on the terror camps of Jaish-e-Mohammed in Pakistan's Balakot on February 26, Pakistan Air Force's F-16 fighter entered the Indian airspace, but was shot down by an IAF's MiG 21 Bison.

The flare-up was triggered by a deadly suicide bombing in India's part of the Kashmir region, which killed some 40 paramilitary police.

The State Department said the diplomats spoke of "the urgency of Pakistan taking meaningful action against terrorist groups operating on its soil". "Pakistan will send an official delegation to India on March 14 to discuss the agreement on the operationalization of the Kartarpur Corridor", he said, adding that Pakistan is also ready to continue weekly contacts at the military operations directorate level. The goal of the call by Bolton was to get Pakistan's perspective on the recent regional developments, a Foreign Office press statement said. "Rafale will boost the morale of the IAF", AY Tipnis told a New Delhi security summit on Wednesday.

In an address at a think tank on Modi government's foreign policy, she said Pakistan was anxious that India would escalate the situation and she was contacted by a number of foreign ministers over it.

But he also urged Islamabad to stamp out militant groups which attack neighbouring countries.
