Will act promptly against Pathankot attackers: Sharif to Modi

New Delhi: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday promised his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi that Islamabad will take "prompt and decisive action" against terrorists linked to the attack on the IAF base in Pathankot.
Sharif gave the assurance after New Delhi provided "specific and actionable information" to Islamabad regarding the terrorists, and Modi underlined the need for Pakistan to take "firm and immediate action" against organisations and individuals responsible for the attack.
The Sharif-Modi telephonic conversation followed the killing of all six terrorists believed to be from Pakistan after they attacked the Indian Air Force base early on Saturday, leaving seven security personnel dead.
An official statement said Modi received a call on Tuesday afternoon from Sharif "regarding the terrorist attack on the Pathankot air base".
"Modi strongly emphasised the need for Pakistan to take firm and immediate action against the organisations and individuals responsible for and linked to the Pathankot terrorist attack," the statement said.
It said specific and actionable information in this regard has been provided to Pakistan. 
"Sharif assured Modi that his government would take prompt and decisive action against the terrorists," it added.
Modi and Sharif met on Christmas Day when the Indian leader, while flying home from Kabul, dramatically made a two-hour halt in Lahore.

What to expect?

If we think and hope Pak. and Mr. Sharif will act on the details and proofs submitted from our end then we are sure we are day dreaming and living in a fools paradise. This is going to be a continuous saga and never a decision for this will be arrived at. People on both sides are being fooled by the politicians with their tall promises and cinematic actions. One side knows fully well what they are talking and what they have to do and doing while the receiving end knows fully well nothing is going to change and will knowingly allow things to happen and drift. Very Very evident. Better we realize this and stop expecting anything from these stage actors. Action speaks louder than words. This is for both side. Congress knows what is going to happen and BJP knows nothing is going to happen. Paper tigers!!!!!!!
