LeT, JeM on our soil, what’s the big surprise : Pakistan admits

Islamabad : In a massive victory for India, Pakistan on Tuesday night admitted that banned militant groups Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) exist and operate from their soil.

Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif, in an interview to Geo.tv, acknowledged the existence of such LeT and JeM among the internationally banned outfits operating from within Pakistan.

“What’s the big surprise about this? We (Pakistan) too has banned these proscribed organisations,” Asif told the anchor, further adding that the country has been trying to fight them for the last three years.

The acknowledgement comes a day after BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) nations unanimously condemned the violence carried out by terrorist groups, including LeT, JeM based out of Pakistan.
