United Kingdom’s Top Diplomat Slams Pakistan For Housing Terror Outfits; Calls For Strong Non-Reversible ActionsGareth Bayley @GarethBayleyFCO

Slamming the Islamic Republic of Pakistan for providing a safe haven to terrorist outfits on its soil, the United Kingdom (UK)'s Foreign and Commonwealth Office Director Gareth Bayley has called on Pakistan to take non-reversible action against terrorism, reports Asian News International (ANI).

Bayley underscored that all the evidence against Pakistan have been put on the table and that Pakistan has to do a lot more and take non-reversible action in this respect. Bayley was speaking at a session in the ongoing Raisina Dialogue 2020.

"It is absolutely clear that terrorist groups are operating from within Pakistan. They pose a serious challenge to the Pakistan Government and the South Asian region as well," noted Bayley.

The call on Pakistan to act against terrorism emanating from its soil and pursue non-reversible action in this respect by the UK comes at a time when Pakistan is at the risk of being black-listed by the global terror-financing and money laundering watchdog Financial Action task Force (FATF).
