Mangalore Today News Network

New Delhi, April 17, 2024: The United States Department of State spokesperson Matthew Miller, commenting on allegations regarding India’s anti-terror operations on Pakistani soil, stated that India and Pakistan should seek resolution through dialogue, while reiterating the country’s non-interference stance.

“So as I have said before, the United States is not going to get in the – into the middle of this, but we do encourage both India and Pakistan to avoid escalation and find a resolution through dialogue,” State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller said when asked about Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent statement that “India will not hesitate to cross borders to kill terrorists”.

A report by the British newspaper The Guardian on April 5 alleged that India carried out multiple targeted assassinations in Pakistan. The central government has rejected the claims as "false and malicious anti-India propaganda".

The US had earlier said that they won’t intervene in the India-Pakistan dispute over assassination allegations.

Days after the report, addressing a public rally in Uttarakhand’s Rishikesh, PM Modi said "Today, there is a strong government in the country. Under this mazboot Modi sarkar, atankwaadiyon ko ghar mein ghus ke mara jata hai (Under the strong Modi government, terrorists are being killed by entering their homes)."

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has also said the government won’t spare terrorists who try to disturb the country’s peace and that they would be hunted even if they run back to Pakistan.

Pakistan, meanwhile, called these remarks "provocative" and "myopic" and said such rhetoric only "impedes the prospects of constructive engagement in the long term". It also added that "Pakistan has always demonstrated its commitment to peace in the region".
