The EU asks Pakistan to take stern action against the terrorists

Federica urged Pakistan to target not only all United Nations-listed transnational terrorist groups but also individuals carrying out such attacks.

The European Union has asked Pakistan to take ‘clear and sustained’ action to rein in the terrorists operating from its land. The statement comes on the heels of the ghastly attack in Pulwama on February 14 that claimed 40 lives of Indian soldiers. The terror outfit Jaish-e-Muhammad, which is based out of Pakistan, took the responsibility of the attack.

The High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice President of the EU Commission, Federica Mogherini has urged Pakistan and India to urgently “de-escalate” the saber-rattling that is on the rise after the attack in Pulwama. Stressing the need to “continue addressing terrorism including clear and sustained actions” Federica urged Pakistan to target not only all United Nations-listed transnational terrorist groups but also individuals carrying out such attacks.

In the wake of the attack, India had launched an all-encompassing diplomatic offense to corner Pakistan and isolate it internationally. PM Modi has also granted full freedom to the forces to avenge the attack as per their choice of time, place and format. India has also stripped Pakistan of the MFN status and levied 200% customs duty on the imported goods from Pakistan.

Union Minister Nitin Gadkari had also announced that the 3 rivers of water assigned to India as per IWT, whose water hitherto was generously allowed to flow to Pakistan, will be diverted to be used for developmental projects in the Yamuna. A few days back, FATF condemned the Pulwama attack and continued to keep Pakistan in the ‘Grey list’ for failing to stop terror financing.
