_______________________________________________________________ Defence Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif says double standard should not be adopted in war against terrorism. In an interview, he said the United States targeted Mulla Akhtar Mansur in a drone attack by violating Pakistan's sovereignty, but is not taking any action against Fazalullah, who is carrying out terrorist attacks in Pakistan from Afghanistan. He said Pakistan has been fighting a successful war against terrorism and marked decline in terrorist activities is its best example. Khawaja Asif said the meeting of National Security Council on the issue of drone attack will be held after the return of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif.

Mr Obama flew into a US base nearby, after leaving the G7 summit. At the base, he said his visit was "a testament to how even the most painful of divides can be bridged".

_______________________________________________________________ The US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has reached the number of delegates needed to secure the party's presidential nomination. In North Dakota on Thursday, he thanked 15 unbound delegates from the state who he said "got us right over the top". He defeated 16 other Republican contenders and according to the Associated Press has 1,238 delegates, one more than needed. Republicans will finalise their nomination at a convention in July. While Mr Trump has the required amount of delegates, his nomination by a divided Republican Party is not yet secured. Unbound delegates in the party are free to support the candidate of their choice.
