Washington: America has once again reprimanded Pakistan for adopting a low attitude on terrorism. A top US diplomat said the Trump administration was not happy with the steps being taken against Pakistan's terrorist groups and was pressuring Islamabad to wipe out such organizations. He also expressed displeasure over Pakistan's action against terrorist Hafiz Saeed.
The outgoing Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs, Alice Wells, said that Pakistan has taken some important steps to end terrorism, but it is not sustainable. Wells said, 'I don't consider these steps permanent, but these are important steps. Whether it is the prosecution and conviction of Hafiz Saeed, the confiscation of assets, we need to focus on this and work with our international partners. '
Participating in a discussion with former US ambassador to India Richard Verma, Wales also said, 'We will definitely continue to support practical steps that India and Pakistan can take to reduce mutual tension' At the same time, they will continue to pressure Pakistan to take credible steps to eliminate terrorist groups.
