The leaders of seven South Asian countries have pledged to take joint action against ethnic terrorist groups. The move came Wednesday at a summit meeting of the South Asian Assn. for Regional Cooperation, which was organized three years ago. The members are India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Maldives and Nepal. Afghanistan has applied to join the group, and India supports the application, arguing that Afghanistan is already a member of the United Nations and the Nonaligned Movement.

Indian Prime Minister P. V. Narasimha Rao, the summit's host, admitted that "actual implementation" of decisions made by the 10-year-old regional grouping has often fallen short of the resounding rhetoric in the past.
