    US says Pak remains terror central

    Pakistan has not taken action against LeT as the terror group continues to “operate, train, rally, propagandise and fundraise” in the country, according to a US State Department report which has acknowledged that India remains one of the most persistent terrorist targets.

    “The Pakistani military undertook operations against groups that conducted attacks within Pakistan such as TTP (Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan), but did not take action against other groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba, which continued to operate, train, rally, propagandise and fundraise in Pakistan,” the State Department said in its annual report on terrorism for the year 2014 released yesterday.

    Afghan Taliban and Haqqani network leadership continued to find safe haven in Pakistan. Although al-Qaeda’s core in Afghanistan and Pakistan has been seriously degraded, its global leadership continued to operate from remote locations in the region that the group has historically exploited for a safe haven.
