Pakistan’s Ambassador to US Jalil Abbas Jilani said that Pakistan is targeting all terrorists indiscriminately. Jilani’s statement comes at a time when a petition seeking White House to designate Pakistan as a terrorist state has received more than 600,000 signatures already.
Despite several attempts to force Pakistan to uproot terrorism from its soil officials in Islamabad continue to harbor dreaded terrorists like Hafiz Saeed and Dawood Ibrahim.
Jilani’s statement also comes out at a time when Pakistan has been engaged in committing terror attacks against India by sending suicide terrorists- the latest being Uri and Baramulla attack.
While Obama is getting ready to demit office in January next year, so no major action is expected to be taken against Pakistan as the president would most likely leave it for the next president to deal with.
