U.S. urges Pakistan to take 'sustained and irreversible' actions against terrorists

Pakistan's big statement: Detained 121 terrorists, took control of 182 madrasas

Indian Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar on Saturday said in a news briefing that Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan Ajay Bisaria will return to Islamabad today.

"Terrorists may attack with little or no warning, targeting tourist locations, transportation hubs, markets/shopping malls, and government facilities", stated the advisory adding that, "US government has limited ability to provide emergency services to United States citizens in rural areas from eastern Maharashtra and northern Telangana through western West Bengal as USA government employees must obtain special authorization to travel to these areas".

An influential US Congressman has warned that Pakistan will continue to slide into global isolation if it does not take actions against terrorist groups operating from its soil.

Bisaria had left last month as a crisis gripped the region following the intrusion of Indian Air Force jets into Pakistani airspace following the killing of Indian troops in a suicide blast in India-occupied Kashmir.

Speaking about Afghan peace process he said that Pakistan wants peace in Afghanistan.

India said Saturday (March 9) that its army is on a "strict vigil" for new attacks from Pakistan and renewed warnings to its neighbour to take concrete action against militant groups. The prime minister said March 8, 2019 that no militant group would be allowed to operate on Pakistani soil and carry out attacks overseas.

"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.

On Monday, Pakistan announced a new crackdown against militants and by Thursday, 182 religious schools run by banned groups had been seized, and more than 120 people detained.

Chaudhry also said Khan has invited India to take part in a joint investigation and negotiations, but there had been no response from the Indian side. Pakistan said the strike only damaged three trees in a forest. The next day, Pakistan Air Force retaliated and downed a MiG-21 fighter jet of the Indian Air Force, while losing an F-16 jet of their own.
