Speaking on Pakistan sponsored Terrorism John Kerry said, “US & India are of exactly similar mind with respect to issue of terror, not only to prevent it but to bring terrorists to justice. US stands in strong partnership with India against all terrorism. We cant, wont make distinction between good & bad terrorists; terror is terror no matter where it comes from or who carries it out. I’ve talked to Pak PM & General Raheel Sharif for the need for Pakistan to deprive any group (terrorist) of sanctuary, It’s well known that LeT & Haqqani network have operated from Pakistan, said US Secretary of State.
Sushma swaraj said, “We have reiterated that terrorism and talks do not go hand in hand. Talks will happen when they address issues like Pathankot attack. There is no rift caused by us when it comes to Pak, we have been of view that we want peaceful talks”.
