US urges dialogue amid Pakistan-India tensions

Amid escalating tensions between Pakistan and India, the United States has urged both nations to prioritize dialogue over escalation, refraining from intervening directly but encouraging de-escalation, as stated by State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller.

This comes in response to recent claims, including statements by Indian Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, suggesting India’s readiness to conduct operations inside Pakistan.

Singh’s admission of India’s policy of targeted killings in Pakistan aligns with a report by The Guardian, revealing such actions dating back to 2020, with similar accusations from Canada and the United States.

The UK publication highlighted India’s strategy of assassinating individuals deemed threats to its interests abroad. In reaction to Singh’s remarks, Pakistan’s Foreign Office condemned them as hyper-nationalistic, emphasizing the exploitation of such rhetoric for electoral gains.

The FO urged the international community to hold India accountable for its alleged extrajudicial actions, describing them as heinous and illegal.
