The United States and India have called on Pakistan to take immediate action to ensure that “no territory under its control is used for launching terrorist attacks”, according to US-India joint statement.

US President Joe Biden and Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi called for action against all UN-listed militant groups including Al-Qaida, ISIS/Daesh, Lashkar e-Tayyiba (LeT), Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), and Hizb-ul-Mujhahideen.

“Both countries stood together to counter global terrorism and unequivocally condemn terrorism and violent extremism in all its forms and manifestations,” the statement said.

Speaking during a joint press conference with Biden, Modi said, “India and America are walking shoulder to shoulder in the fight against terrorism and extremism. We agree that concerted action is necessary to end cross-border terrorism.”

Notably, his comments come days after China blocked proposals at the United Nations to designate Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Tayyiba’s Sajid Mir as a “global terrorist.”
