Washington: Terrorist organisations based in Pakistan such as Lashkar-e-Tayyiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad have maintained the "capability and intent" to attack Indian and Afghan targets, a report by the US State Department said.

The report accused Pakistan of not taking sufficient action against terrorist groups such as LeT) and JeM, which it said "continued to operate, train, organise, and fundraise in Pakistan." The report said India continued to experience attacks from Pakistan based terrorist organisations.

"Indian authorities blamed Pakistan for cross-border attacks in the state of Jammu and Kashmir," the report said while adding that it (India) continued to apply pressure to detect, disrupt, and degrade terrorist organisations' operations within its borders.

The document by the US States Department accused Islamabad of not restricting the Afghan Taliban and Haqqani Network (HQN) from operating in the safe havens based in Pakistan.

"The government (Pakistan) failed to significantly limit Lashkar e-Tayyiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) from raising money, recruiting, and training in Pakistan - and allowed candidates overtly affiliated with LeT front organizations to contest the July general elections," it said.
