New Delhi (India), June 28 (ANI): United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who is on a three-day visit to India, on Thursday stated that Pakistan is becoming a safe haven for terrorists.
She said that even though Pakistan is a partner to the United States, terrorism operating on the Pakistan soil would not be tolerated by them
"We share a commitment to defeating terrorism and the hateful ideology that motivates it. The US values Pakistan as a partner but we cannot tolerate the state becoming a haven for terrorists and hope to see a change," Haley said.
Earlier in the day, Haley met External Affairs Minister (EAM) Sushma Swaraj, and both the leaders held a discussion on various topics like UN reforms, counterterrorism and leadership roles of women in India.
On Wednesday, Haley had called on Prime Minister Modi and discussed ways to enhance cooperation between the two countries, including on counter-terrorism.
They expressed confidence that strong India-US partnership would continue to be an important factor for global peace and prosperity.
The 46-year-old diplomat, who is the highest-ranked Indian-American in US President Donald Trump's administration, last visited India in 2014, when she was the South Carolina Governor. (ANI)
