Due to the Modi-Biden statement, Pakistan summons the US envoy and receives a stern response


PM Modi and Vice President Biden had urged Pakistan to act right away to prevent the use of any of its controlled territory as a base for terrorist activities.Earlier this week, US President Joe Biden and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi issued a joint statement urging Islamabad to ensure that its territory was not used as a base for terrorist attacks. On Monday, Pakistan’s foreign ministry summoned the deputy chief of mission at the US embassy to express concern and disappointment over the statement.

In a daily press conference, US State Department spokesman Matt Miller told reporters that although Pakistan had taken significant steps to combat terrorist organisations, Washington lobbied for more to be done.”At the same time, however, we have also been consistent on the importance of Pakistan continuing to take steps to permanently dismantle all terrorist groups, including Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammad, and their various front organisations, and we will raise the issue regularly with Pakistani officials,” he said.

During Prime Minister Modi’s official visit to the US, the two nations issued a joint statement denouncing terrorism and violent extremism in all of its manifestations. Modi and Biden urged coordinated action against all terrorist organisations on the UN’s list, including those with ties to Pakistan, such as Lashkar e-Tayyiba (LeT), Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), and Hizb ul-Mujahideen. Both sides demanded that the attackers of the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai and Pathankot, which had long-established ties to Pakistan, be brought to justice.
