  • Pakistan arrests suspected terrorists in Pulwama attack - Tamil News

Pakistan faces growing worldwide pressure to rein in Islamist groups that carry out attacks in neighbouring India.

The paper said the relative calm after last week's confrontation between the two nations is not a solution.

"I also call on China to play a constructive role in India and Pakistan relations".

"As long as India and Pakistan refuse to deal with their core dispute - the future of Kashmir - they face unpredictable, possibly terrifying, consequences", it said. After an emergency meeting of the National Security Council (NSC) Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Pakistan "reserves the right to retaliate at a time and manner of its choosing".

"Prime Minister Imran Khan should use this opportunity to reset his country's relationship with the world and chart a new course for Pakistan", he said.

Reports said PM Modi's office was sent a message for a telephonic conversation between the leaders, but there was no "positive" response.

"The next confrontation might not end so calmly", it added.

Lakers, LeBron agree to minutes restriction
Despite James' 17 points, the Lakers trailed powerful Denver 66-49 at halftime, seemingly headed to their fourth straight loss. It was one of many great plays that LeBron has made during his career, but it was also one of many shots that he's taken.

Within an hour or so of the suicide attack on an Indian paramilitary convoy in Pulwama on Feb 14 in Indian Held Kashmir (IHK) that killed 40 Indian soldiers (many of them Sikhs), near hysterical Indian news anchors and Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP's) hardcore cadres went berserk blaming Pakistan.

WHILE the armed forces on both sides remain in a state of high alert and are distrustful of each other's intentions it does seem that some back channels contacts have brought acceptable assurances and permitted the resumption of bus and train services, and of contact on the Kartarpur Corridor. The next day, Islamabad captured an Indian Air Force pilot after a dogfight between the two air forces.

Responding to questions during his weekly media briefing, Faisal claimed Pakistan "defeated India militarily, diplomatically and politically in the ongoing border row, which has de-escalated over the past few days".

Warning that "all options were on the table" in case there was another terrorist attack, a source said: "If there is a naya Pakistan with a naya soch, we expect to see action on the ground".

"And while it's good when India and Pakistan decide to walk back from the brink, as they seem to be doing now, the U.S. should be ready to assist if they can not".

Earlier, Pakistan's Acting Permanent Representative Tahir Hussain Andrabi had made references to Kashmir in his statement to the Council.

India on Saturday said if Pakistan claims to be a "naya Pakistan" with "nayi soch", it should show "naya action" against terrorist groups and their infrastructure on its soil and end cross-border terrorism in support of its claims.
