PESHAWAR, 26 November: The United States has said Pakistan’s unwillingness to arrest Jamaatud Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed may affect Pak-US ties.

According to a statement issued by the White House, the United Nations has declared Jamaatud Dawa a terrorist organisation, therefore, Pakistan should take action against him.

The US has made this statement after a court in Pakistan set free Hafiz Saeed from house arrest. The US government has announced Rs10 million bounty on the JuD chief. The statement said US President Donald Trump wants cordial ties with Pakistan. However, it said, the US expects Pakistan to take effective action against all terror groups.
