Prime News, National (New Delhi), February 23:- Ahead of the US President Donald Trump’s visit to India on Monday, Washington observed that Pakistan will need to act on terror groups extremists on its territory to have a successful dialogue with India. The White House said in a statement released on Friday (February 21).
A senior US administration official said, “We continue to believe a core foundation of any successful dialogue between the two is based on continued momentum in Pakistan’s efforts to crack down on terrorists and extremists on its territory. So we continue to look for that.”
On being asked if the US President will offer to mediate on the Kashmir issue during his two-day tour to India, the official said, “I think what you’ll hear from the President is very much encouraging a reduction in tensions between India and Pakistan, encouraging the two countries to engage in bilateral dialogue with each other to resolve their differences.” (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
