US Spy report,Pakistan-based terror groups plan to attack India, Afghan

A top US spymaster has said that Pakistan-based terrorist groups are planning to attack both India and Afghanistan.

Daniel Coats, Director of National Intelligence told members of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence during a Congressional hearing on Worldwide threats that Islamabad has failed to curb militants and terrorists in Pakistan.

Coats said, these groups will present a sustained threat to the United States’s interest in the region and continue to plan and conduct attacks in India and Afghanistan. Pakistan, he rued, is expanding its nuclear arsenal in pursuing tactical nuclear weapons, potentially lowering the threshold for their use.

Coats said, Pakistan is concerned about international isolation and sees its position of India’s rising international status including India’s expanded foreign outreach and deepening ties to the United States.
