US Slams Pakistan for Linking Afghanistan Unrest to Kashmir Issue

Supporting India's "right to self-defence" in the aftermath of the Uri attack, which it dubbed a "clear case of cross-border terrorism", the US on Wednesday dismissed the recent attempt by Pakistan to link peace in war-torn Afghanistan with resolution of the Kashmir issue.

The White House backed India's right to defend itself as with any other country, in view of the recent surgical strikes but advised caution given the heavy militarisation between the two neighbours.

It also said that the US is making every effort to ensure that India becomes a member of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) by the end of this year.

But how about we ask you to keep aside some money to help someone else have a cracker of a Diwali too? Not that difficult, right?Here’s an idea. How about you #SpreadTheLight – a campaign initiated by The Quint. This festive season, you can join us in raising money to light up para-athlete Shweta Sharma’s life. Sounds cool, haina?

So what are you waiting for? Join The Quint in partnership with Ketto and #SpreadTheLight.
