US urges India, Pakistan to solve Kashmir issue bilaterally
WASHINGTON (92 News) – The United States has again urged Pakistan and India to solve Kashmir issue through a bilateral dialogue.
“On Kashmir issue, our position has not changed. We want this to be worked out between both sides, the issue of Kashmir. We obviously want to see the tensions that exist right now be brought down and for dialogue to take its place – meaningful dialogue to try to address these issues bilaterally between the countries,” US State Department Spokesperson John Kirby said in a press briefing on Friday.
“So we’re going to continue to work with the governments in the region to try to address these common threats and challenges, and we’ve always said that more can be done about the safe havens and that’s – we’re going to, again, try to work as cooperatively as we can to that end,” the spokesman further said.
Kirby added that we want them to work through those differences. “We don’t believe for a minute that they don’t take the challenges before them seriously or the lives and security of their children,” he said.
