`US working with Afghan-Pak to reduce tension`
Washington: United States is working with both Afghanistan and Pakistan to reduce the tension between the two South Asian neighbours over cross-border fighting, the Pentagon has said.
"We`re working closely with both countries, obviously, to try to limit violence along the Afghan-Pakistan border. We have obviously been in constant contact with the Afghan government to work on these issues, and we have put pressure on the enemy that operates along the border," the Pentagon Press Secretary, George Little, said at a news conference.
"On the Pakistani side of the border, we are settling back into a normal phase of cooperation with our Pakistani partners, and coordination, we believe, is improving," Little told Pentagon reporters in response to a question that Afghanistan has now warned for the last few days to Pakistan that stop cross-border shellings and civilians are being targeted.
Little said he does not think there would be any change in Pak policy towards Afghanistan because of the new Prime Minister.
"No, we don`t believe so," he said.
