Pakistan's High Commissioner to India returns to his post in New Delhi

VIP culture often risks security PM

'Pakistan Started Crying at 5am.Yet Doubts Raised by Their Sympathisers': PM Modi on Balakot Air Strike.

"This de-escalated a unsafe situation but more has to be done".

Beijing has been urging restraint by New Delhi and Islamabad in response to reciprocal air operations carried by both countries in Kashmir last week after the Pakistan-based terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) claimed responsibility for the February 14 suicide bombing that killed more than 40 Indian security forces in the India-administered Kashmir.

"Pakistan has banned many of these terrorist groups, including adding two more groups on March 5, but at the same time tolerates them operating within its own borders".

Wang's comments came in anticipation United Nations vote to condemn Masood Azhar, the head of the Pakistan-based JEM terrorist group. It is, however, unclear whether this "preventative detention", as Pakistan described it, will lead to criminal prosecutions and justice being served, he said.

Speaking on the sidelines of the annual National People's Congress legislative meetings, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi declared on Friday that India and Pakistan should "meet each other halfway" to defuse the crisis, portraying Beijing's role as a balancing act between its nuclear-armed neighbors, the South China Morning Post (SCMP) reports.

The MEA reminded Islamabad of the then Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf's 2004 statement when he had made a solemn public commitment that they would not allow any territory under their control to be used for terrorist activity in any manner.

"These actions are in accordance with UN Security Council Resolution 1267".

Asked whether it was right to say that the worst was over and de-escalation has taken place between the two neighbours, Kumar said at a media briefing on Saturday that India's airstrike on a terrorist training camp inside Pakistan on February 26 was "necessitated by the lack of action by Pakistan on the perpetrators of Pulwama attack".

In Islamabad, the Interior Ministry on Thursday claimed that a total of 121 members of the proscribed terror groups have so far been taken into "preventive detention" across Pakistan.

Pakistan faces growing global pressure to rein in Islamist groups that carry out attacks in neighbouring India.

The statement also said Pakistan should explain why it continues to deny that its F-16 aircraft has been shot down when there are eye-witness accounts and electronic evidence, and if, as Pakistan claims, a second Indian aircraft was shot down, why it has not shown the fuselage or produced the pilot of that aircraft.

Only one aircraft was lost by India during Pakistan's unsuccessful attempt at targeting Indian military installations, he said.
