Pakistan assures US it will deal 'firmly' with terrorists

Referring to the recent simmering tensions between India and Pakistan, Qureshi said that prime minister Khan reaffirmed that "Islamabad will take two steps if New Delhi takes one".

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that the topmost priority of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government is to revitalize the national economy.

Pakistan has assured the USA that it would deal "firmly" with all terrorists operating from the country, and take steps to de-escalate tensions with India, according to National Security Advisor John Bolton.

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday apprised German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas on post-Pulwama regional situation, and urged the global community to take notice of the grave human rights violations in Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK).

The Foreign Minister also informed Mr. Bolton that Pakistan's High Commissioner to India had returned to Delhi after consultations.

Eminem’s rep denies report about deal with WWE
The deal, reached today, was put together in part to promote the launch of WWE Smackdown Live on the Fox Network . Eminem's spokeperson Dennis Dennehy denied that a deal is done and that it isn't likely to happen.

About the Afghan peace process, he said Pakistan was extending full cooperation to the United States in peace talks with Taliban.

"I used to receive calls from foreign ministers who used to first condole the Pulwama attack, then express their solidarity and then they used to softly say that we think India will not escalate the situation", she said.

It is to be noted that both India and Afghanistan have repeatedly asked Pakistan to take credible measures in order to curb terrorism and terror groups operating from its territory.

A Pakistan Army official told Hindustantimes: "We have confirmed reports that PAF's F-16 acquired from both United States and Jordan are on high alert all along India-Pakistan border-from Hyderabad in Sindh to Skardu in Northern Areas".

"There is enough evidence where one could speculate with confidence that the Balakot strike by the Indian Air Force was successful and Pakistan has not been able to prove otherwise since it has not enabled the worldwide media or national media to visit the site", he told ANI. The worldwide community also mounted pressure on Islamabad to act against the terror groups operating from the country and stop providing safe havens to them.
