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 US 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 US 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.

          stan talks of non state actors as terrorists, giving the impression that the government has no control over them. That is correct. The government has no control over the army, and army is always referred to as non-state-actors by stan media. lt;br/gt;All terror by stan is orchestrated by military. The regular army and terrorists are trained in the same premises and even football matches are held between terrorists and uniformed army personals. lt;br/gt;Terrorists command more respect in these terrorist training centres. These terrorists are not non-state-actors but 100% state-sponsored-terrorists.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The w of army is non-state-actor because the army chooses its own budget, and whatever little is leftover is given to the state to run the rest of economy.lt;br/gt;So stan is always right when it says that terrorists are non-state-actors

              Just another one by the U S. Empty words no longer interest India. What the U S can do, it isn't doing. Because they have been ured of safety from terrorists by Pak, who controls the worlds terrorists. Also empty words coming from the U K for their own interest. lt;br/gt;India should no longer depend on empty urances from either Obama or U S, it should act on it's own in national interest. U S only trying to do what pak wants, that is talks between the two countries. Ignore U S statements from now onwards.

                      Will there be any other country in the world, who live to see the destruction of its neighbor than stan? Pak never ever tried to take their own people to a better tomorrow, whatsoever happened, it happened automatically. Neither the domocratically elected governments nor the Military establishments ruled so far, gave a shi_tt to the betterment/welfare of its people. Good that stan was separated during 1947, or else they would have made India too in their own way, aint it????
