US says its main focus is to reduce tensions between India and Pakistan


Two weeks after the Indian Air Force struck a Jaish-e-Mohammed camp in Pakistan and the subsequent dogfight between Indian and Pakistan fighters at the Line of Control, the US Department of Defense has said that the main focus of the United States government was to reduce tensions between the two neighbouring countries.

“We do urge both sides to continue to take steps to de-escalate the situation. Our focus is on de-escalating tensions because further military activity between India and Pakistan would only exacerbate the situation,” Pentagon spokesman, Lieutenant Colonel Koné Faulkner, said in an e-mailed response to CNBC-TV18.

When asked if Pakistan had indeed used F-16 fighter jets against India on February 27, the spokesperson said, “These are claims from one foreign nation against another. As a result, these questions need to be addressed to that nation”. Read More
