[dropcap]W[/dropcap]ASHINGTON – Pakistan has said that it has taken sufficient action against terrorism and there was “no-question” of doing more, adding that it was time for the world to play a bigger role in this fight.
“There is no question of doing more,” Pakistani foreign secretary Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry told reporters here on Wednesday when asked about statements from the US that the country needs to do more in its fight against terrorism, particularly against Haqqani network and Lashkar-e-Taiba.
“We have done enough (in the fight against terrorism). Do not talk of doing more,” Chaudhry said, adding that it is time for the rest of the world to “do more” in this regard.
The diplomat argued that Pakistan has a strong record in the fight against terrorism and has earned praise from the entire world including the United States on this.
In a meeting with Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in New York on September 27, US secretary of state John Kerry urged additional action against the Haqqani network and Lashkar-e-Taiba, an official US statement had said.
