Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan said that soon he would have a “good news” for Iran as he spoke to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani over telephone on Saturday. His remark came after the Iranian President had urged him to take “decisive” action against a militant group that claimed a deadly suicide attack in a border area.

“We are awaiting your decisive operations against these terrorists,” Iran’s IRNA news quoted Rouhani as saying during the telephonic conversation with Mr. Khan.

Adding that both countries should not allow the action by small terrorist groups affect the decades friendship and fraternity, Rouhani said to Mr. Khan that ‘the source of whose financing and arms was known both of them.’

A suicide bomber killed 27 members of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards in mid-February. Jaish al Adl (Army of Justice) militant group had claimed responsibility for the attack.

Kashmir needs independent journalism…

…now, more than ever to give a voice to the voiceless. The press in Kashmir has operated under tremendous pressures of reporting from a conflict zone but since August 2019 we find ourselves in unchartered territory. The Kashmir Walla is among the oldest independent media outlets in Kashmir and has withstood successive lockdowns as well as attempts to suppress us, fighting back with authoritative ground reports based on facts.

We believe in making the powers that be accountable to their actions but to also hold the mirror to the society. We believe in covering all sides of the story and that empowerment in essence means the ability to make informed decisions. As such we have not allowed our journalism to be influenced by the pressures.

Despite the new and still unknown pressures, we are all the more committed to keep informing you of events and stories that matter. Our recent coverage of events has brought us an increased readership. However, the coronavirus pandemic and resultant economic crisis has affected our operational capabilities. We are facing an existential threat but only your support can help us withstand this and maintain our editorial independence.

We need your solidarity to keep our journalism going. Your contribution will empower us to keep you informed on stories that matter from Kashmir. Show your solidarity by joining our members community. Kashmir thanks you.
