India, US seek tangible, ‘irreversible action’ by Pakistan against terrorism

A day later, Pakistani jets violated Indian air space and downed a MiG-21 Bison.

A short still of the resultant crater is then shown etched indelibly into the ground. He said Pakistan's response on February 27 was purely in self-defence against an external aggression.

The test comes amidst immensely strained relations between India and Pakistan, after the two nuclear powers nearly erupted into full-blown conflict last month.

Amid mounting outrage, the Indian Air Force carried out a counter-terror operation, hitting the biggest JeM training camp in Balakot, deep inside Pakistan on February 26.

The flare-up was triggered by a deadly suicide bombing in India's part of the Kashmir region, which killed some 40 paramilitary police.

Labour will vote to block no deal tonight
MPs have supported an amendment to reject a no-deal Brexit at any time and under any circumstances by 312 votes to 308. Some of her colleagues around the Cabinet table think it shows she has to tack to a closer deal with the EU.

India and the United States sought "tangible and irreversible action" by Pakistan against terrorist groups and leaders, with the U.S. national security advisor saying Washington stands shoulder-to-shoulder with New Delhi in its fight against terrorism.

The State Department said the diplomats spoke of "the urgency of Pakistan taking meaningful action against terrorist groups operating on its soil". "The FM assured me that Pakistan would deal firmly with all terrorists and will continue steps to de-escalate tensions with India".

In Islamabad, Pakistan's Foreign Office said the objective of Mr. Qureshi's call was to provide Mr. Bolton Pakistan's perspective on the "recent regional developments".

India's former Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal A.Y. Tipnis has suggested that if India had had a promised fleet of French Rafale fighters at its disposal, they could have helped the Indian Air Force (IAF) destroy at least half of the Pakistani warplanes encountered during last month's dogfight.

The Foreign Minister also informed Mr. Bolton that Pakistan's High Commissioner to India had returned to Delhi after consultations.
