Pakistan PM calls Modi on airbase attack, promises action against possible perpetrators

Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif Tuesday called his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, promising "prompt and decisive action" against possible Pakistan-based perpetrators of the attack upon Pathankot airbase last weekend, said the prime minister's office.

Modi received a call this afternoon from Sharif regarding the terrorist attack on the Pathankot airbase, the office said.

Modi "strongly emphasized the need for Pakistan to take firm and immediate action against the organizations and individuals responsible for and linked to the Pathankot terrorist attack," it said.

India has already given "specific and actionable information" to Pakistan on the involvement of militants in Pakistan in the attack, it said.

Sharif "assured Prime Minister Modi that his government would take prompt and decisive action against the terrorists," the statement said.

From five to six militants attacked an airbase in Pathankot in Punjab, northern India, in the early morning last Saturday, killing seven Indian air force personnel and a security commando while injuring over 20 others.

At least five militants were killed by security forces in a three-day gun battle.
