Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif reportedly discussed the terror attack on Pathankot Air Force base with foreign affairs adviser Sartaj Aziz and other top officials on Thursday afternoon.
National Security Adviser Lt. General (retired) Naseer Khan Janjua and Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan were also reportedly part of the meeting. Sharif had held the meeting to "examine" the evidence that India had provided to support its claims of Pakistan's involvement in the Pathankot attack, according to reports.
Indian National Security Adviser Ajit K Doval had on Monday shared some crucial evidence that linked Pakistan to the attack with his Pakistani counterpart Janjua, The Economic Times reported.
Sharif wanted immediate action against the militant groups involved in the Pathankot attack, according to an IBN tweet.
On Tuesday, the Pakistani prime minister had called Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and assured him that immediate action would be taken against the militant organisation or individuals who were behind the attacks.
The Indian security establishment reportedly said that Pakistan Army's General Headquarters was behind the Pathankot attack. A top security official said the Pakistani Army was not happy with the Indian prime minister's surprise visit to Lahore and the Modi-Sharif bonhomie, The Times of India reported.
A foreign secretary-level meeting between India and Pakistan is also scheduled for 15 January.
