Pakistan was eliminating terrorism from its soil and would not allow anyone to use its soil to conduct terror operations abroad, he told US Secretary of State John Kerry, who talked to him over phone.
John Kerry said that the United States (US) applauded the Prime Minister’s leadership role over Pak-India ties.
In such a difficult environment, he said, the leadership like that of Prime Minister Sharif was needed.
“We hope that the talks between both countries will continue despite the fact that terrorists have tried to thwart it,” he was quoted as saying by a press release.
He said that continuation of India-Pakistan talks were needed in the interest of regional stability and the leadership role by both the prime ministers was required to ensure continuous dialogue.
The Prime Minister told Secretary Kerry that they were swiftly carrying out investigations over the terror incident in a transparent manner and would bring out the truth.
“World will see our effectiveness and sincerity in this regard,” he added.
Secretary Kerry extended full support and cooperation to the Prime Minister to find out the truth in Pathankot terror incident.
