WASHINGTON: The United States has urged Pakistan to go after those terrorist groups that seek safe haven on its soil and territory.
Deputy Spokesperson US State Department Mark C. Toner in a press briefing said we are pushing for more dialogue between Pakistan and India, which we believe will help reduce tensions in the region.
He further added that we have seen India play a more supportive role with regard to Afghanistan and support for the Afghan Government. “But whenever you look at any situation like you have, any conflict like you have, in Afghanistan, certainly there’s a range of different regional dynamics that play into it. It’s just a matter of fact.” “But our goal is to continue to support the Afghan military as it steps up its fight against the Taliban and to support the Afghan Government as it pushes much-needed reforms in the economy and the democratic system,” Toner added.
He said we have said, we do support an Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace process.
