Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ongoing US visit is being widely discussed in international media.
It is reported that one of India’s major concerns was the discussion on intense terrorist activities related to Pakistan. Modi’s visit to the US is seen as a response to address these concerns.
The US has acknowledged Modi’s efforts in dealing with terrorism indirectly by criticizing Pakistan’s involvement in such extremist activities.
The United States has made it clear that they are committed to working with Pakistan to combat the rising threat of extremist groups in the Indian subcontinent.
This statement was given by Matt Miller, the spokesperson for the US State Department, in response to a question from a Pakistani media correspondent regarding the joint statement issued by India and the US during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s American visit.
The United States emphasized the importance of Pakistan’s acceptance of measures to permanently eliminate all terrorist groups, including Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed.
This statement highlights the significance of Pakistan taking action to ensure the eradication of these extremist groups.
“We are committed to working with Pakistan to directly address the escalating threat of terrorist groups operating in the region.
At the same time, Pakistan must not forget the importance of implementing measures to permanently eradicate all violent extremist groups.
We continuously urge Pakistan’s authorities to take necessary actions against organizations such as Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed.
We seek cooperation from officials in Pakistan to jointly combat these terrorist activities.” – Statement by the spokesperson of the State Department.
Pakistan, in order to bring an end to all forms of terrorism within its territory and prevent the use of its region for violent attacks, should take action as assured by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Joe Biden in their joint statement.
To address the concerns raised in the Modi-Biden joint statement, Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has called upon the Deputy Chief of the US mission to express their apprehensions.
It is noteworthy that Prime Minister Narendra Modi concluded his US visit this month, including a visit to Egypt, before returning to the country.
President Joe Biden, according to reports, met with him during his visit to the US.
