Pakistan has decisively acted against terrorism. Hafiz Saeed was prevented from calling for Jihad in Gaddafi stadium and instead only called for Jihad in a local mosque.


Pakistan should be removed from FATF and US should reimburse $50 Billion Pakistan has lost due to fight against terrorism.

Stop spreading baseless allegations to defame Pakistan. US should reimburse not $50 Billion but $126.79 Billion.

Pakistan foreign secretary’s private visit fuels talks speculation - Dipanjan Roy Chaudhury, Economic Times
Pakistan foreign secretary and erstwhile high commissioner Sohail Mahmood’s visit to Delhi on Eid has sparked speculations of possible meetings between him and Indian officials ahead of a potential interaction between the prime ministers of the two countries in Bishkek next week.

Imran Khan may be desperately seeking an audience with Modi to soften Indian stance in FATF. Pakistan truly is nervous about FATF.

Kashi, I don't know but I would doubt it. Modi has taken an unwavering consistent stand.

However, inimical forces are at work as they always are. That article on SAARC appeared in Terroristan and as if on cue, a similar one appeared the same day in The Hindu. This is not coincidental.

SSridharJi, we cannot rule out some discussions on the side, not with the GoI, but others in the political arena.

I think we all remember the visit by the former Baki foreign minister Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri. None from the GoI engaged him, but MSA hosted a "dinner" for him that was attended by many "stalwarts" including MMS, Hamid Ansari, Natwar Singh and this very "gentleman" who was then the Baki HC in India, this was just before the Gujarat elections and on December 6 of all the days!!

I hope GoI kep a close eye on his movements.

Why are they even allowed to base their families in Delhi? After all didn't the great quaid say that Hindus and Muslims couldn't live together?

AFAIK, Islamabad is currently a non-family station, which means that officers posted there need to leave their families behind in Delhi or native place while serving (it certainly was a family station years ago, but then years ago we had a consulate in Karachi as well).

Why did this become a photo opp for him? He shouldn't have been allowed to visit Jama Masjid, and should have been told to offer his prayers in a local facility, and I am sure there is one within the premises of the Paki embassy itself. Or even better, in the Army mosque.

Islamabad and Karachi both stations allow for families of IFS cadre to be based with them. I'm not sure where you picked up that info from. Ajay Bisaria's spouse is quite active in environmental circles in Isloo.

We have nothing in Karachi. Regarding the family situation, based on the stories about harassment and threat to life I thought it was the case like it is with Afghanistan.

Vetting of visa applications at the BPO (Visatronics) is done by a consul level officer before forwarding to the Embassy in Isloo. Afghanistan doesn't provide diplomatic security whatsoever hence families don't stay in Kabul.

No Imran - Modi meeting on the cards at SCO moot – Reuters

NEW DELHI: There is no bilateral meeting planned between the prime ministers of India and Pakistan at a regional summit next week, India’s foreign ministry spokesman Rajeev Kumar said on Thursday.

Imran Khan and Narendra Modi are both scheduled to attend a meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) in Kyrgyzstan on June 13-14.

Last month, foreign ministers of the two South Asian neighbours shook hands with each other on the sidelines of the SCO Council of Foreign Ministers meeting in Kyrgyzstan’s capital Bishkek, signalling de-escalation in tensions flared up following the Pulwama incident in February.

Ice melts as Pakistan, India foreign ministers shake hands at SCO moot

Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Sushma Swaraj discussed matters of mutual interest during an informal interaction, the Foreign Office confirmed. “Swaraj complained about bitter statements and she also brought sweets so we can speak in a sweeter tone,” Qureshi was quoted as saying.

“We’ve however reiterated our desire for a peaceful resolution of all outstanding issues between the two countries,” Qureshi said, recalling that Prime Minister Imran Khan, in his first speech after winning the 2018 elections, had extended an olive branch to the neighbouring country.

ISPR has a 'massive' budget, this includes overseas lobbying, funding of think tanks in DC, concerted SM factories churning out their narrative, journos on their pay roll, rendezvous for foreign intel ops, the list goes on. Surely, they pay a fat cheque to the face of the what can be construed as the largest propoganda machine.

As is the norm in La La Terrorland:
https://www.dawn.com/news/1486778/defen ... -unchanged
Defence budget during the next fiscal year will remain unchanged as compared to the outgoing fiscal year in rupee terms due to the country’s dire economic condition.

The defence budget freeze will be for one year.

The original budgetary allocation for the outgoing fiscal year (2018-19) was Rs1.1 trillion. The allocation made up 21 per cent of last year’s original budget outlay and 3.2pc of gross domestic product (GDP).
The actual expenditure incurred on defence this year will, however, be announced by the finance ministry while laying the budget for next year (2019-20) before the National Assembly on June 11. The figure will, however, not give the complete picture of the defence budget as it will not include Rs260 billion for pension of retired soldiers, Rs45bn for security enhancement and undeclared allocations for major weapon procurements and strategic programme.

as FS, does he not command an army of minions to pack his tattered chaddies and striped undies, bung them in a cardboard box and stick then on a PIA or any other airline flight to islamabad

Onus forIndo-Pak peace onPakistan: White House – PTI

WASHINGTON: Amidst new peace overtures from the Imran Khan government after the re-election of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the White House has made it clear to Pakistan that the onus for sustained peace in South Asia was on it by putting the terror groups out of business.

Khan has written a second letter to Prime Minister Modi after his re-election, saying that Pakistan wants talks with India to resolve all differences, including on the Kashmir issue. Im Ran Can't -Modi WON'T!

The Pakistani premier said talks between the two nations were the only solution to help both countries' people overcome poverty and that it was important to work together for regional development.

However, India has rejected Pakistan's offer of talks, maintaining that terror and talks cannot go together and said that no bilateral meeting has been planned between the two premiers on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Summit (SCO) in Kyrgyzstan's capital Bishkek on June 13-14.

“What the United States is really looking for in Pakistan are arrests and prosecutions and not allowing these groups to operate and move around freely, acquire weapons, cross into India, carry out attacks, ” a senior White House official told PTI this week.

The United States is looking for sustained and irreversible steps that shut down their operations, asserted the official who spoke on condition of anonymity.

“Until these groups are put out of business, it's going to be very difficult for India and Pakistan to achieve a sustained peace. So the onus is on Pakistan to ensure that they crack down on these groups, ” said the White House official responding to a question on the US assessment of the Indo-Pak tension.

A senior State Department official said that in the wake of the Pulwama terrorist attack, the US has seen Pakistan taking some initial actions against designated terrorist organisations and more steps to enhance counter terrorism financing measures.

A senior State Department official said that in the wake of the Pulwama terrorist attack, the US has seen Pakistan taking some initial actions against designated terrorist organisations and more steps to enhance counter terrorism financing measures.

“We welcome those steps,” the official said.

“We have always agreed that the underlying causes of the tensions between India and Pakistan needed to be addressed … and the underlying tension has been the role of terrorist forces that have sanctuary on Pakistani soil. So we certainly encourage the creation of an environment that will lead to a dialogue, ” the official said.

Pakistan needs to take practical steps to demonstrate that it is countering terrorist financing and extremists that are located on their territory, a senior State Department Official told reporters last week.

Paris-based international terror financing watchdog FATF in June last year placed Pakistan onto its watch list in a bid to push the country to halt support for militant groups.

In February, the FATF decided to continue the 'Grey' listing of Pakistan for its failure to stop funding of terrorist groups such as the JeM, the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and the Jamaat-ud- Dawa (JuD).

India’s intransigence Editorial

India has thrown cold water on speculations that there would be a bilateral meeting between the prime ministers of Pakistan and India at the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) gathering next week in Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan. Hopes for a thaw in the relations between the two countries were high after Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi had an unscheduled meeting with then Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on the sidelines of the SCO meeting of foreign ministers, also in Bishkek, on May 22.

It was the first face-to-face meeting between the two foreign ministers and the highest-level interaction since the heightening of tensions in the aftermath of the Pulwama attack. The two were initially scheduled to meet on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York last September, but India backed out after accusing Pakistan of having ‘bad intentions’. Although the May 22 meeting did not provide anything concrete, Qureshi told Swaraj that Pakistan wanted to resolve all outstanding issues with India. As Swaraj had brought sweets to ‘sweeten the tone’ of the talks, as the Pakistani FM put it, there were hopes that it would be the first step in efforts to normalise relations between the two archrivals after border breaches and heated election rhetoric in India.

India’s new External Affairs Minister, Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, has also signalled that there might be something in the offing, noting recently that India has the “responsibility to play a more active role and incentivise cooperation in the region”, which would obviously require moving towards better ties with Pakistan. Unfortunately though, his boss doesn’t seem to have gotten the memo. Despite having a clear mandate after his landslide election win, Modi seems increasingly uninterested in doing something that would be in the interest of India, Pakistan and the world — mostly because it would go against his brand of Hindu nationalism around a muscular defence of national security, and would infuriate his far-right base. Maybe India doesn’t feel that now is the time to make peace. But the Pulwama experience should serve as a reminder that at some point, the finger-wagging has to stop, lest we create more Abhinandans, on either side.

^^Pakistan is mis-calculating seriously, as is their usual practice. If it thinks that a box of sweets from Sushma Swaraj and FM S.Jaishankar's enunciation of India's responsibility in the region are to be interpreted as a thaw, then they are repeating the mistake.

Or they are trying to pin all of it on PM Modi as that article above tries to do so. They are trying to build up a perception that "most" in the "Indian establishment" are for resumption of talks and that the talks would have resumed long ago but for PM Modi.

Expect this line of thinking to be pursued further.

They would be really foolish to pull off an Akbar Bugti on Ali Wazir, it will only give legitimacy to PTM to push further. Chacha Doval must be watching with hawkish eyes, as will the NDS. MNS and BB sharing a platform must have given Ghafoora some sleepless nights, what could he possibly do after his misguided presser threatening to crush the movement and don the hat of an education reformer.

Considering that the two countries were at the brink of war only a few months ago, the need for dialogue cannot be understated.


First time ever that an editorial in the Paki "we speak 400% better English than Indians" Dawn finds full agreement from BRF? :wink: :D

The usual Paki trick is to try to divide the Indian Govt and then play victim. They talk to 1 person within the Govt, pretend that that person and they (pakis) struck a deal, and then claim that another person within the Govt "scuttled" the deal, so they are now the victims. They did it with ABV and claimed that Advani ruined their deal over Kashmir. Now they are talking to Sushma/current ForMin, and will claim that evoil Yindooo Modi is ruining peace and tranquility in region. Yawn. Pakis never learn.
