Japan has become the latest in the list of countries to condemn February 14 Pulwama terror attack in India and pull up Pakistan for not taking appropriate action against the terror outfits within their country.

Expressing its concerns over the situation in Kashmir, the Japanese government demanded Imran Khan's government to take strong measure to tackle terrorism while urging both India and Pakistan to exercise restraint.

Following is the statement issued by Japan's Foreign Minister Taro Kono:


  1. Japan is concerned about the deteriorating situation in Kashmir.
  2. Japan strongly condemns the terrorist attack on 14 February 2019 for which the Islamic extremist group “Jaish-e-Mohammad” claimed responsibility. Japan urges Pakistan to take stronger measures to counter terrorism.
  3. In response to the mounting tension due to the operations since 26 February between the Indian Air Force and the Pakistan Air Force, Japan strongly urges India and Pakistan to exercise restraint and stabilize the situation through dialogue.

Despite global pressure and irrefutable evidences suggesting Pakistan provides shelter to terror outfits, Imran Khan and his government have remained in denial. They are yet to take any kind of action action against Jaish-e-Mohammed - orchestrator of Pulwama attack - and haven't even accepted that the terror outfit has its roots in Pakistan.

Relations between India and Pakistan took a serious hit following the Pulwama attack, but the events in the past two days has made it clear that India will go all out until the time Pakistan takes a strong stand against terrorism and perpetrators of the February 14 attack.

On Tuesday, the Indian Air Force stormed inside the Pakistan territory and carried out a successful strike. Terror camps belonging to JeM, also used by other organizations like Hizbul and LeT, were blown away by 16 Mirage 2000s in an operation which lasted 17 minutes.

A spooked Pakistan resorted to cheap tricks on Wednesday by attempting to infiltrate the Indian airspace. Though, their efforts were unsuccessful as the Indian Air Force shot down one of Pakistan's F-16 while sending back the other two.
