Global community is on the same page with India on terrorism emanating from Pak
The Spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs Gopal Baglay said the international community is on the same page with India on terrorism emanating from Pakistan and their solidarity with New Delhi on cross border terrorism is now moving towards enforcement and action.
In the report, the US on Wednesday listed Pakistan among the nations providing "safe havens" to terrorists, saying terror groups like the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) continued to operate, train and raise funds inside that country.A similar report was released by the US last year too.
Talking about cooperation between India and the US in effectively dealing with terror, Baglay said the US has taken or proposes to take a number of measures against Islamabad to contain terrorism.
Replying to a question on mentioning of Naxals as terror group in the report, Baglay said like terrorists, they also cause huge damage and loss of lives. "...we all know it is terrorism."
Asked about ceasefire violations in the last few days by Pakistan along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir, he said India has lodged a protest with Pakistan in a note verbale.
He said a total of 240 ceasefire violations by Pakistan have been reported in the current year so far which is significantly high compared to last year.
