“It is our responsibility to uncover if our soil was used in the attack,” said Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. He said the terrorists were being defeated and in desperation, they were carrying out isolated acts to make their presence felt, adding that the remaining ones would also be eliminated.

Vows that Pakistan will go to any length to uncover the alleged use of its soil in the January 2 attack.

“Pakistan will soon complete its investigation into the Pathankot terror attack which had a negative impact on talks with India,” Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Saturday.

Talks with India were “going in the right direction” after the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, he said but regretted that the attack disturbed the negotiation process.

Mr. Sharif vowed that Pakistan would go to any length to uncover the alleged use of its soil in the January 2 attack on the air base in Pathankot by suspected Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terrorists.

It is our responsibility

“It is our responsibility to uncover if our soil was used in the attack. We will do this and the ongoing investigations will soon be completed,” Mr. Sharif told reporters here.

The terrorists were being defeated and in desperation, they were carrying out isolated acts to make their presence felt, he said, adding that the remaining ones would also be eliminated.
