JAIPUR: Asserting that tolerance on the issue of terrorism must be frankly exposed, Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar on Wednesday said India is in touch with Pakistan on the Pathankot attack probe.

“India is in touch with Pakistan (on the Pathankot attack probe) and will remain so,” he said while speaking at the Counter-Terrorism Conference 2016 here.

Jaishankar said naming and shaming must be carried out relentlessly in case of perpetrators and supporters of terrorism. “The broad sense of responsibility is still not there fully in International communities, even amongst nations who are themselves victim of terrorism,” he added.

Following the deadly attack on the Indian Air Force in Pathankot on January 2, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had assured of a thorough and fair probe into the same.

He had also asserted that the attack on the Pathankot air base in Punjab dented the dialogue process between Pakistan and India.

President Pranab Mukherjee, who inaugurated the conference yesterday, said that terrorism was undoubtedly the single gravest threat that humanity was facing at present.

"Terrorism is a global threat which poses an unprecedented challenge to all nations. No cause can justify terrorist acts. It is imperative that the world acts in unison against terrorism, without political considerations. Therefore, there is a need to take a resolve to not justify terrorist means whatever the reason or the source," he said.
