Clear out terror havens and then let us talk: Ajit Doval tells Pak NSA
New Delhi, Oct 11: "Do not deny, take action and then our talks will have meaning," this is what National Security Advisor, Ajit Doval told his Pakistani counterpart, Nasir Jung Januja during a conversation on October 1.
The phone conversation between the two NSAs which lasted around 30 minutes was aimed at de-escalating tensions between the two countries following the surgical strikes.
Doval told Januja that it is high time that Pakistan acted against jihadis who were using Pakistan as their launch pads. "Talks will be effective only if action against such elements are taken," Doval also told Januja.
"After the Pathankot attack, there has been so much evidence handed over, but no action has been taken. I want to remind you that Pakistan has still not fixed a date for a visit by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) to probe the Pathankot attack," Doval also said during the conversation.
"You will have to ensure that terror is not exported into India. We have shared so much evidence against the operatives of the Jaish-e-Mohammad, but no action has been taken," Doval also reminded Januja.
If this channel of talks has to be successful then action ought to be taken by Pakistan, the NSA also told his counterpart in Pakistan.
