Thanks to worldwide community for de-escalating Pak-India tensions: FM

Pakistan began a crackdown against terror groups this week amid growing worldwide pressure in the wake of the terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama in which 40 CRPF soldiers were killed.

According to the Foreign Office, the Pakistani envoy took Prime Minister Khan's advice on bilateral ties with India before his departure to New Delhi.

Pakistan Interior Secretary Azam Suleman Khan has claimed that further action will be taken against the JeM terrorists if New Delhi provided evidence of the group's involvement in the attack to Islamabad.

India on Saturday said if Pakistan claims to be a "naya Pakistan" with "nayi soch", it should show "naya action" against terrorist groups and their infrastructure on its soil and end cross-border terrorism in support of its claims. They must see who the perpetrator was and how an organisation in Pakistan took it upon itself, in its various publications, to take credit for what, in terms of the language associated with militant incidents, was a "lone wolf" operation by a Kashmiri freedom fighter/militant/terrorist.

The NYT said that without worldwide pressure, a long-term solution was "unlikely and the threat of nuclear war remained".

"A solution to a conflict that touches so many religious and nationalist nerves must ultimately come from within, through talks among India, Pakistan and the people of [occupied] Kashmir". Talks are necessary between the three parties - the Kashmiri people, India and Pakistan and can not be delayed for too long.

As the American media warn that the Kashmir dispute could lead to a nuclear conflict in South Asia, a senior USA general says terrorists continue to stoke tensions between India and Pakistan.

"This government will not allow Pakistan's land to be used for any kind of outside terrorism", Khan said while addressing a rally in southern Pakistan. "When the whole world has mounted pressure on Pakistan, some people in India are making statements to favour Pakistan, which is using those remarks to create confusion among worldwide community", he said. "Pakistan desires to resolve the core regional dispute through dialogue", he said.

"It's hard to see a role as a mediator for Trump, who has shifted the United States more firmly against Pakistan and towards India, where he has pursued business interests". The Director General (DG) of Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), Major General Asif Ghafoor in his tweet said that one of the aircrafts fell inside Pakistan-occupied Kashmit while the other fell inside Indian territory.
