India and US have called for concerted action against all terrorist networks including al-Qaida, ISIS, Lashkar e-Tayyiba, Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), Haqqani Network, Hizb-ul Mujahideen and D-Company.

The two countries have asked Pakistan to take immediate, sustained and irreversible action to ensure that no territory under its control is used for terrorism against other countries in any manner.

In a joint statement issued after second India-US 22 Ministerial Dialogue, the two nations also asked Pakistan to arrest and prosecute the perpetrators of cross-border terrorist attacks, including 26/11 Mumbai and Pathankot attacks. India appreciated US support at the United Nations for terrorist designations, including of JeM leader Masood Azhar, and the United States welcomed changes in Indian law that will facilitate further cooperation on terrorism designations.
