New Delhi [India], Apr. 4 (ANI): The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Tuesday said that the government's position for bilateral redressal of all issues concerning India and Pakistan in an environment free of terror and violence hasn't changed yet. "We of course expect the international community and organisations to enforce international mechanisms and mandates concerning terrorism emanating from Pakistan which continues to be the single biggest threat to peace and stability in our region and beyond," MEA official spokesperson Gopal Baglay said. Stating that President Donald Trump's administration will try and "find its place to be a part" of efforts to de-escalate tensions between India and Pakistan, United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley had earlier said it's absolutely right that this administration is concerned about the relationship between the two Asian neighbours and is keen to de-escalate any sort of conflict going forward. "We don't think we should wait till something happens. We very much think that we should be proactive in the way that we are seeing tensions rise and conflicts start to bubble up, and so we want to see if we can be a part of that," she told a press conference in New York. "I think that will be something that you will see members of the (US) National Security Council participate in, but also wouldn't be surprised if the president participates in that as well," she added. The United Nations has been continuously voicing concerns over the continuing tensions between India and Pakistan. (ANI)
