Statement made by External Affairs Minister on actions taken by Pakistan

December 31, 2001
New Delhi

We have received information about some actions having been taken by Pakistan authorities against the Lashkar-e-Tayyaba and Jaish-e-Mohammad including the arrest of their leaders, some other officials of these organisations, as also raids on some of the premises of these two terrorist organisations. 

If this information is confirmed, then it is a step forward in the correct direction. We hope that such actions against terrorist activities targetting India, including Jammu & Kashmir, would be pursued vigorously, until cross- border terrorism in our country is completely eliminated.
