Islamabad :     A new U.N. report has acknowledged the action taken by Pakistani government against individuals engaged in terrorist activities, and claims that terror group Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan (TTP) was responsible for over 100 “cross-border’ attacks within 3 months last year.
Pakistan has consistently highlighted the terrorism threat from TTP.
In its 27th report to the U.N. Security Council, the U.N. monitoring team that tracks different terrorist and extremist groups points to the arrests of “individuals engaging in terrorism financing and the freezing of the assets of designated individuals and entities” in Pakistan.
The UN acknowledgment comes at a time when India continues to blame Pakistan for inaction against the designated groups.
The UN report observed the “reunification of splinter groups (of TTP) that took place in Afghanistan”.
Report says that merger of TTP has enhanced the threat of terrorism to Pakistan and the region, as it has “increased the strength of TTP and resulted in a sharp increase in attacks”.
Pakistan had handed over a dossier to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on the Indian sponsorship of TTP and JuA last year.
Both terrorist groups have been designated by the 1267 Sanctions Committee of the Security Council.
