JuD ban: Proceeding under UN resolution, says Pakistan

Pakistan on Friday said it was proceeding strictly to ban Hafiz Saeed-led Jamaat-ud-Dawa and the dreaded Haqqani network even as it sought constructive talks with India to resolve the vexed Kashmir issue. Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit also hoped that US President Barack Obama’s visit here beginning Sunday will contribute in injecting some stability in the region.
