The US castigated Pakistan again for being safe heaven for terrorists

As per The United States Pakistan is still the safe refuge for terrorists and Pakistan failed to take ‘substantial actions’ against the Afghan Taliban or HQN despite governments efforts. Pakistan was termed as an ‘an important counter terrorism partner in 2016’.

These terror groups are targeting civilians, officials, and religious minorities not only in Pakistan and but also outside Pakistan.

“Violent extremist groups targeted civilians, officials, and religious minorities. Major terrorist groups focused on conducting terrorist attacks in Pakistan included the Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Jamaat‑ul‑Ahrar (JuA), and the sectarian group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ).

Groups located in Pakistan, but focused on conducting attacks outside the country, included the Afghan Taliban, the Haqqani Network (HQN), Lashkar e-Tayyiba (LeT), and Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM)” the US State Department said in its annual “Country Reports on Terrorism”.

The report further says that National Action Plan against terrorism by Pakistan government is not successful.
