NEW DELHI — The US State Department has slammed Pakistan in its just released country reports on ‘Terrorism 2020’. According to the report, Pakistan has made limited progress to counter terrorism.

The State Department says Pakistan has not taken steps to prosecute terrorist leaders such as Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) founder Masood Azhar and Lashkar-e-Toiba’s (LeT) Sajid Mir, the mastermind of the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

The report added that groups targeting Afghanistan — including the Afghan Taliban and affiliated Haqqani Network, as well as groups targeting India, including LeT and its affiliated front organisations, and JeM — continued to operate from Pakistani territory.

The report said, “Pakistan made additional progress in 2020 toward completing its Financial Action Task Force (FATF) Action Plan, but did not complete all Action Plan items, and remained on the FATF ‘grey list’,” and read further: “The government and military acted inconsistently with respect to terrorist safe havens throughout the country. Authorities did not take sufficient action to dismantle certain terrorist groups.”
