US State Dept refuses to comment on Pak dossiers


WASHINGTON: The United States on Wednesday refused to comment on dossiers provided by Pakistan on Indian involvement in terror activities in FATA, Balochistan and Karachi.

State Department spokesman John Kirby said India and Pakistan “stood to benefit from practical cooperation,” and the US encouraged both India and Pakistan to engage in direct dialogue aimed at reducing tensions. “Steps that initiate closer regional trade and energy ties we believe will create jobs, lower inflation and increase energy supply,” he said
