Pak must break terror networks: Obama

Terming the Pathankot terror strike “another example of the inexcusable terrorism that India has endured for too long”, US President Barack Obama on Sunday demanded that Pakistan must “delegitimise, disrupt and dismantle” terrorist networks that operate from its territory.

In a tough message, Obama said that Pakistan “can and must” take more effective action against terrorist groups based there, emphasising that “there must be zero tolerance for safe havens and terrorists must be brought to justice.”

“Pakistan has an opportunity to show that it is serious about delegitimising, disrupting and dismantling terror networks”, Obama told PTI in an interview here. Obama also gave credit to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for reaching out to his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif after the Pathankot attack.
