NEW DELHI - Indian Defence Minister Niramala Sitharama recently admits Indian government diplomatic failure to isolate Pakistan and diplomatically pressurise Pakistan.
She said Modi travelled across World Capital to isolate Pakistan and diplomatically pressurise Pakistan over issue of terrorism but desired results could not ve achieved.
She slammed Pakistan for its prolonged inaction against militants groups on its soil. She admitted that India went forward with the airstrike as Pakistan failed to act despite having sufficient proof.
We gave them dossiers and proof. Concrete action wasn't available. The PM (Narendra Modi) was also going around the world and travelling to take concrete action around the world," she said while addressing a crowd at FICCI, Chennai on the occasion of Women's Day.
Sitharaman also said that the Indian government has been trying to isolate Pakistan in the global stage as it continues to shield militant groups like Jaish-e-Mohammed and its chief Masood Azhar.
The defence minister said the attack on Pulwama was a direct reaction to prolonged inaction by Islamabad despite several warnings.
"One thing is clear. Pakistan is not acting on militants.
