Surgical strikes: The United States on Wednesday supported India’s “right to self defence” in the aftermath of Uri attack which killed 19 Indian soldiers, while dismissing Pakistan’s recent attempt to link peace in Afghanistan with resolution on Kashmir issue.

Speaking before the Washington audience, Peter Lavoy, the White House’s point person for South Asia said that the Indo-Us relations are most dynamic for his country.

While condemning the Uri attack he said it was a clear case of cross-border terrorism.

But in a heavily militarised ties that has also experienced three wars, there is a need for restraint, said Lavoy.

Both India and Pakistan have a “friction-filled relationship” and they have not yet overcome that, he said further.

Recently, Lavoy met the two special envoys of Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Kashmir issue.

Two envoys had linked peace in Afghanistan to resolving the Kashmir issue in their public meetings .

Lavoy also said the Obama administration is taking every possible step to ensure that India becomes a member of the Nuclear Suppliers Group by the end of 2016.

In 2016 India ought to join the NSG, he said while referring to the commitment made by the US.

The White House spokesperson argued that India becoming a member of the group, would exhibit it’s new leadership in non-proliferation.

    Hilarious that the US can condone self defense, but any country that is bombed by the US who never attacked the US is considered a terrorist if the strike back LOL, the end is near es, Russia will def Nuke the US if they get clever in Syria, they Just do not get Putin nor the Fact the Russians love him for being a Hammer, no a soft . just one nuke in new york and one in LA will end the US forever they would never recover, the 5th largest economy in the world is California, and the backbone of the US, radiation alone would make the rest of it undesirable, and New york would simply crush the cowardly spirit they have thinking they are tough when really bombing people from a distance was never tough and on the ground they always lost is any equal numbered combat when they could use air strikes. bye bye will miss the movies, but will get over it in about 3 minutes. When you invade the world like hitler using hitlers own reasoning and words to justify attacking countries who never attacked you based you your Vay is Zee only Vay, then you are just another the world will be glad to see the end of the few tears that were shed in Australia at 911 were over the loss of our tv programs replaced by the crying cowards for a ing month, no one outside of America except American groupies gives a what happens to America and that Jack is a Fact, if there was a public vote in Australia to can every treaty with the US it would be a ing landslide.
