White House National Security Adviser John Bolton 

WASHINGTON (Reuters): White House National Security Adviser John Bolton said on Monday that Pakistan’s Foreign Minister has assured him Islamabad is committed to de-escalating tensions with India and dealing “firmly” with terrorists, after a recent suicide attack on an Indian paramilitary convoy claimed by Pakistan-based militants.

“Spoke with Pakistani FM (Shah Mehmood) Qureshi to encourage meaningful steps against JeM (Jaish-e-

Mohammed) and other terrorist groups operating from Pakistan. The FM assured me that Pakistan would deal firmly with all terrorists and will continue steps to deescalate tensions with India,” Bolton said on Twitter.
