New Delhi: The Congress Party on Saturday asked the United States (U.S) Government to pressurise Pakistan on the export of terror from its soil against India.
"If US considers that it has outside balancing power in various regions then it must put pressure on Pakistan to ensure that the export of terror to India stops from Pakistan," said Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari.
Tewari also said that "when the U.S was attacked on September 11, 2001, they went out for the terrorists based in Afghanistan and Pakistan and took out Osama bin laden from Abbottabad."
"But all in these years US Government has never put pressure on Pakistan to stop the export terror across its eastern border to India, it`s high time that the US also started being even-handed," he said.
Pakistan called off the NSA-level talks with India late yesterday night.
A statement issued by Pakistan Foreign Office said the proposed talks will not serve any purpose if conducted on the basis of what it called "preconditions" laid down by India.The US had earlier expressed its disappointment over the called off NSA talks between India and Pakistan.
