Act tough against terror : US’ strong message to Pak

act-tough-against-terrorThe United States has strongly warned Pakistan on the war-mongering by some groups and asked it to act tough against terror outfits like JeM, LeT and Hizbul Mujahideen.

The US has also objected to threats of nuclear warfare made by Pakistan against India and has conveyed its displeasure to Islamabad in this regard.

“We made that (American objection on nuclear threat) clear to them (Pakistan). Repeatedly,” a senior State Department official said.

“It is very concerning. It is a serious thing,” the official said when asked about Pakistan Defence Minister Khawaja Asif’s assertions, twice in the last 15 days, that his country could use nuclear weapons against India

“We will destroy India if it dares to impose war on us,” Asif had told a Pakistani news channel in his latest interview. “Pakistan army is fully prepared to answer any misadventure of India.”

Deputy State Department Spokesman Mark Toner told reporters at his daily news conference that nuclear-capable states have “a very clear responsibility to exercise restraint regarding nuclear weapons and missile capabilities.”

The US Presidential front runner from Democrats Hillary Clinton has expressed fears on Pakistan saying there is a possibility of human suicidal nuclear bombs may be sent out. She also stated that Pak may go into the hands of Jihadists.
