US labels Pakistan a safe haven for terrorists

The US listed Pakistan among countries and regions providing “safe haven“ to terrorists, saying groups like the LeT and JeM continued to operate, train, organise and raise funds in the country in 2016.

Official sources in Delhi said segments on South and Central Asia in the state department's Country Reports on Terrorism, 2016, vindicated India's long-held position on cross-border terror. It said, “Pakistan forces held operations against groups that conducted attacks within Pakistan like Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan.“ India, the state department said, continued to experience attacks, “including by Maoist insurgents and Pakistan-based terrorists“.
