Will act promptly against Pathankot attackers: Sharif to Modi 

New Delhi, Jan 5 (IANS) Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday promised his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi that Islamabad will take “prompt and decisive action” against terrorists linked to the attack on the IAF base in Pathankot.

Sharif gave the assurance after New Delhi provided “specific and actionable information” to Islamabad regarding the terrorists, and Modi underlined the need for Pakistan to take “firm and immediate action” against organisations and individuals responsible for the attack.

The Sharif-Modi telephonic conversation followed the killing of all six terrorists believed to be from Pakistan after they attacked the Indian Air Force base early on Saturday, leaving seven security personnel dead.

An official statement said Modi received a call on Tuesday afternoon from Sharif “regarding the terrorist attack on the Pathankot air base”.

“Modi strongly emphasised the need for Pakistan to take firm and immediate action against the organisations and individuals responsible for and linked to the Pathankot terrorist attack,” the statement said.

It said specific and actionable information in this regard has been provided to Pakistan.

“Sharif assured Modi that his government would take prompt and decisive action against the terrorists,” it added.

Modi and Sharif met on Christmas Day when the Indian leader, while flying home from Kabul, dramatically made a two-hour halt in Lahore.
