Nawaz Sharif reviews action on Pathankot attack
Nawaz Sharif reviews action on Pathankot attack




Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Friday reviewed Pakistan’s progress in acting on information provided by India on the Pathankot attack even as Islamabad pushed for a sustained dialogue in the wake of the terrorist assault that has cast a shadow on a planned meeting of the foreign secretaries. The meeting in Islamabad, which was also attended by army chief Gen Raheel Sharif and ISI chief Lt Gen Rizwan Akhtar, reiterated Pakistan’s commitment to cooperate with India to “completely eradicate” terrorism. The Pathankot attack had figured in another meeting between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his top aides on Thursday but the issue was overshadowed by the Saudi Arabian foreign minister’s visit to seek Pakistan’s support in the ongoing diplomatic row with Iran. The commitment to cooperate with India in tackling terrorism, made in a statement issued by Sharif’s office, appeared to be aimed at ensuring that a planned meeting of the foreign secretaries on January 15 is not put off because of the attack on the Pathankot airbase, blamed on the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed. The statement contained several assurances that appeared to be aimed at assuaging India, which on Thursday linked the talks between the foreign secretaries to “prompt and decisive action” by Pakistan against the perpetrators of the attack, according to the Hindustan Times.
