The Ministry of External Affairs on Monday said that India does not believe that Pakistan is showing enough commitment to dismantle the bases of operations of terror organisations like the Lashkar-e-Taiba. “How the government of USA decides to spend US taxpayers’ money is entirely its own prerogative. However, India does not believe that Pakistan is showing either sustained commitment or making significant effort or ceasing support or dismantling bases of operations of the Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Jaish-e-Mohammad, the Haqqani network and quite possibly the Al-Qaeda,” said Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin. He added that increased sightings of Punjabi, Urdu speaking elements operating with terrorist groups inside Afghanistan posed a significant threat to members of the international community working in the strife-torn nation. “Also, with increasing sightings of Punjabi, Urdu speaking elements operating with terrorist groups inside Afghanistan, we now also know that these very groups also pose a significant threat to members of the international community working in Afghanistan, including to Indian diplomatic personnel working in the Indian embassy and our four consulates there,” added Akbaruddin. The MEA’s stern message came after United States Secretary of State John Kerry praised Pakistan for its action against terrorist organisations like the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM). He also signed off a certification that made Islamabad eligible for an aid package, reportedly in the region of USD 500 million.
