wanted terrorists and criminals on Sep. 14, 2016 in Delhi, Abdul Qayoum Sajad, a member of the house’s international relations committees said. He said the pact was shared with the lower house for voting today. He said the pact was written in 22 articles and aimed at putting an end to all sponsorship of terrorists including those who target the two countries (Afghanistan and India.) Sajad said the document was earlier submitted to various committees of the lower house for review.
