Pathankot probe to be over soon, says Pakistan PM Sharif

Whatever facts come out we will bring them forth before everyone, says Sharif

Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Saturday said Pakistan and India’s ties were moving in positive direction.

“Matters between Pakistan and India are moving in the right direction,” Mr Sharif said while talking to reporters in Lahore.

The premier regretted the Pathankot incident disturbed the negotiation process but hoped the talks process will resume soon. “Pakistan will not allow terrorists to use its soil against any other country,” he added.

Pakistan will soon complete its investigation into the Pathankot terror attack and make it public, Sharif said. The attack had a negative impact and disturbed the talks with India which were “going in the right direction” after the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, he said.

“The investigation into the Pathankot incident is underway and we will make its findings public soon,” he said while talking to reporters here.

“Whatever facts come out we will bring them forth before everyone,” he said.

Sharif vowed that Pakistan would go to any length to uncover the alleged use of its soil in the January 2 attack on the air base in Pathankot by suspected JeM terrorists.
