No militants will be allowed to attack from Pakistani soil: Imran Khan

No militants will be allowed to attack from Pakistani soil: Imran Khan

Amidst rhetoric by Indian officials in the aftermath of the attack, both Pakistan and India had called back their respective high commissioners for consultations.

Meanwhile, Pakistan's High Commissioner to India, Sohail Mahmood, is also expected to reach New Delhi on Saturday.

"Since February 26, following demands from the global community, Pakistan is again claiming to take fresh action against terror groups on its soil".

Citing "security concerns", Pakistani security officials on Thursday barred a Reuters team from climbing a hill in northeastern Pakistan to the site of a madrasa, or religious school, and a group of surrounding buildings that was targeted by Indian warplanes last week.

"Pakistan has failed to take any credible action against Jaish-e-Mohammed and other terrorist organisations, which continue to operate with impunity from Pakistan", he added.

The Indian spokesman said "the widespread presence of terrorist camps in Pakistan is public knowledge within and outside Pakistan". The decision was finalised earlier in the week, with New Delhi also agreeing to return its envoy to Islamabad, Ajay Bisaria, who is also scheduled to resume his charge from today. It also says shut a number of facilities and frozen assets of several outlawed organizations.

The dossier was handed over to Pakistan after Prime Minister Imran Khan in his address to the nation had offered Indian government to hold dialogue.

"Prime Minister (Imran) Khan can help Pakistan earn enormous goodwill by tracking down and bringing to justice Masood Azhar, whom the Pakistani Foreign Minister indicated was alive, with his whereabouts known".

"India hasn't shared yet any actionable information and proof against anybody", he added.

Speaking about Thar's coal reserves, he said that the natural resources of the area would certainly change Pakistan. One day later Pakistan responded with fighter jets crossing into Indian-administered Kashmir.
