Pakistan, India respected partners, says US


NEW YORK: US Defence Secretary Ashton Carter has said that both Pakistan and India are friends and partners of the United States and there is no Indo-Pak hyphenation from its perspective.

Speaking at the Council of Foreign Relations here ahead of his three-day visit to India, Mr Carter said: “The US has a ‘whole global agenda’ with India, covering all issues, while the relationship with Pakistan has to do with issues of terrorism and Afghanistan.”
