Hizb-ul-Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin admits on a Pakistan TV channel to carrying out terror attacks in India.

Syed Salahuddin, declared a global terrorist by the US last week, vowed on Saturday to continue his armed struggle against Indian forces to liberate Jammu and Kashmir.

"We will not end this fight without liberating Kashmir from India," Salahuddin, 71, told a news conference in Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

The United States declared Salahuddin, who also heads the Pakistan-based United Jihad Council, a "global terrorist' hours ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's maiden meeting with President Donald Trump in Washington on June 26, a decision the militant leader said was only made to appease India.

He said the Hizbul Mujahideen only targets Indian forces and the Islamic State group and al-Qaeda have no presence in Kashmir.
