Pakistan has been asked by the US to take “meaningful action” against terrorist groups the next day of India’s air strike on a major terror training camp across the Line of Control. The US President Donald Trump has advised India and Pakistan to “exercise restraint” in the middle of high tension between the two countries.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told in a statement, “We encourage India and Pakistan to exercise restraint, and avoid escalation at any cost.”
Meanwhile, Mr. Pompeo spoke secretary had discussion separately with Foreign Minister of India Sushma Swaraj and her Pakistan counterpart Shah Mahmood Qureshi. He told the sources, “I also encouraged both ministers to prioritize direct communication and avoid further military activity.”
While having the conversation with Mr. Qureshi, Mr. Pompeo emphasized the priority of de-escalating current tensions by avoiding military action, and the urgency of Pakistan taking meaningful action against terrorist groups operating on its soil.
On Tuesday midnight Indian fighter jets crossed the Line of Control, carrying out “non-military, pre-emptive air strikes” within Pakistan. India targeted a major terror training camp of the terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad in Balakot and finished.
Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj stated that “It wasn’t a military operation. No military installation was targeted. The objective was to act against terrorist infrastructure of JeM to preempt another terror attack in India. India doesn’t wish to see further escalation of situation. It’ll continue to act with responsibility and restraint.” Ms. Swaraj is currently in China to hold a meeting with the foreign ministers of Russia and China.
As per IAF sources, the air strike has successfully killed a “very large number” of terrorists and senior trainers of Jaish. In the operation, over 300 terrorists along with Jaish chief Masood Azhar’s brother-in-law were killed.
India has given a reply to the dreadful suicide terror attack of Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama by the Jaish-e-Mohammad terror group on February 14, killing 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) soldiers.
