We reaffirmed the urgent necessity for Pakistan to dismantle safe havens for terrorists and criminals networks, including LeT, JeM and the D-Company", she said. Addressing a session at the Indian Institute of Technology here, he said one nation alone can not fight terror groups such as Daesh, Al Qaeda, LeT and Jaesh-e-Mohammad.
In 2015, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Barack Obama had come to decision to raise India-US meeting into a Strategic and Commercial Dialogue, reflecting the significance of the trade and economic ties between the two sides. After visiting US Secretary of State John Kerry announced in New Delhi on Tuesday (Aug 30) the restart of the trilateral talks following the Second India-US Strategic and Commercial Dialogue, State Department spokesperson John Kirby said the scheduled discussions were "important and they are going to continue".
Sushma Swaraj said that she briefed Kerry on the continuing problem of cross-border terrorism that India and the larger region faces from Pakistan. "In the interconnected world we live in today, dangers that are somewhere else are not far away", Kerry said. We have talked about sanctuaries in the country. He said a society which does not give equal opportunities to its citizens makes them a potential extremist or terrorist. On Pakistan, Kerry said, it is clear that there is work to do for Pakistan to push harder against sanctuaries of terror.
The two countries hope to find those involved in terrorist attacks in India, including the January attack on the Pathankot air force base. Mr Kerry said, there can not be distinction between good and bad terrorists as terror is terror no matter where it emanates from or who carries it out. Besides supporting India on its demand to Pakistan regarding terrorism, Kerry has also confirmed that progress was made on an agreement about the construction of six nuclear reactors by United States giant Westinghouse.
In particular, India is seeking justice for a 2008 terror attack in Mumbai that killed 172 people, and wounded more than 300. Kerry also hinted at some of the challenges impacting India's relationship with the US. I have had many engagements with (Pakistan PM) Nawaz Sharif. US Secretary of State, John Kerry has made an indirect dig at Modi government by lecturing it on freedom of expression in India. India and the United States also agreed to restart a three-way dialogue with Afghanistan next month on the sidelines of the UN Genreal Assembly in NY and signed an agreement to combat and counter cyber attacks.
