New Delhi, Jan 11: The United States has called for partnership between India, Pakistan and Afghanistan on counter-terrorism operations. State Department Deputy Spokesman Mark Toner told reporters in Washington that the security of the three countries is linked with one another.
He said, as much as they work in tandem on counter-terrorism operations, it will be for the betterment of the region.
The Deputy Spokesman also condemned the terror attacks in Afghanistan. He agreed with the allegations of the Afghan government that the continuation of terror safe havens in Pakistan gave terrorists an opportunity to carry out attacks inside Afghanistan at their will.
Mr Toner said, the attack on Afghanistan’s Parliament is an attack on democracy and the US would not let the war-torn country slip away the gains.
