Washington D.C.,[US] Oct. 19 (ANI): In yet another stern warning to Pakistan, the United States has asserted that it is working very hard to push Islamabad to go terrorist groups that seek safe haven on their soil and territory.

State Department Deputy Spokesperson Mark Toner said in a press conference that another goal of the U.S. is to push for more between Pakistan and India, which will help reduce tensions in the region

"We're always working hard to push Pakistan to go after those terrorist groups that seek safe haven on their soil and territory, rather. And we're pushing for more dialogue between Pakistan and India, which we believe will help reduce tensions in the region," he said.

Lauding India's 'supportive' role with regard to Afghanistan and support for the Afghan Government, Toner added that the U.S. aims 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

"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. And then ultimately, as we've said, we do support an Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace process," the spokesperson added. (ANI)
