Pakistan is going through a tough time as the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) will soon decide whether it will keep the country on its greylist or downgrade it to the dreaded blacklist.
Before FATF seals Pakistan's fate, the US has asked the nation to prosecute "arrested" terrorists of Lashkar-e-Taiba, along with Hafiz Saeed, who is responsible for the ghastly 26/11 attacks on Mumbai.
State Department official welcomed "arrests" of terrorists
The head of the US state department's South and Central Asian Bureau, Alice Wells, commented on "arrests" of top four LeT leaders, identified as Professor Zafar Iqbal, Yahya Aziz, Muhammad Ashraf, and Abdul Salam.
"We welcome news that Pakistan arrested 4 #LeT leaders. The victims of LeT's vicious attacks deserve to see these individuals prosecuted now, along with LeT leader Hafiz Saeed," she tweeted.
Notably, she also mentioned Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's words
As @ImranKhanPTI has said, #Pakistan, for its own future, must prevent militant groups from operating on its soil. AGW
