US for dialogue between Pakistan, India to improve ties

US for dialogue between Pakistan, India to improve ties

WASHINGTON: The United States of America is aware of the tensions at Pak-India border, said State Department Spokesman John Kirby.

During a daily media briefing, John Kirby, while replying to a question about killing of soldiers and civilians on both side of border during the last couple of months said, “We’re certainly aware of them. And in at least one case, investigations are just now beginning. We want to respect that process.”

He said US has talked about the threat of extremism there in the region. It affects everybody on both sides.

The spokesman went on to say, “We continue to want to see dialogue and discussion between India and Pakistan to improve cooperation, to improve communication, and improve shared efforts against a common threat.”

To a question, Kirby said, “Pakistani leaders know all too well the threats of extremism and terrorism inside their own borders because they’ve lost too many soldiers and citizens.”
