Several US officials have been overseas this week to visit Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India to discuss counterterrorism efforts in the region and the stabilization of Kashmir.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that US Senator Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.) has said that Pakistan must stop supporting the Taliban and other terrorist groups, following a visit to Islamabad alongside fellow Democratic Senator Chris Van Hollen, where they met Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa, and officials from Pakistan-controlled Kashmir.
“It was particularly helpful to discuss with key Pakistani leaders what more can be done to pre-empt terrorist attacks and prevent the spread of terrorist ideology", said Hassan one day after meeting with Pakistani Prime Minister Khan.
“It was important for us to communicate directly to Pakistan’s senior leadership that they must end support to the Taliban and other terrorist groups. In addition, amid escalating tensions in Kashmir, it’s critical that we find ways to help de-escalate the situation on both sides", she added, according to the Hindustan Times.
