Washington: Slamming Pakistan for not taking action against LeT, a US report on counter-terrorism today said India remained severely affected by and vulnerable to terrorism, including from Pakistan-based groups.
“The Pakistani military undertook operations against groups that conducted attacks within Pakistan such as TTP (Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan), but did not take action against other groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), which continued to operate, train, rally, and fund raise in Pakistan during the past year,” the State Department's Country Report on Terrorism for the year 2013 said.
“India remained severely affected by and vulnerable to terrorism, including from Pakistan-based groups and their affiliates as well as left-wing violent extremists,” the report said.
India, in response, continued to undertake efforts to coordinate its counter-terrorism capabilities more effectively and expanded its cooperation and coordination with the international community and regional partners, said the annual report on counter-terrorism as mandated by the US Congress.
South Asia remained a front line in the battle against terrorism, it said.
