US security advisor calls Indian counterpart, expects Pakistan to ‘act against terror’

National Security Advisor Susan E. Rice spoke by phone on Wednesday with Indian National Security Advisor Ajit Doval.

According to the statement released by the White House, Ambassador Rice strongly condemned the September 18 cross-border attack on the Indian Army Brigade headquarters in Uri and offered condolences to the victims and their families and affirmed President Obama’s commitment to redouble the United States’ efforts to bring to justice the perpetrators of terrorism throughout the world.

Ambassador Rice reiterated the US’ expectation that Pakistan take effective action to combat and delegitimize United Nations-designated terrorist individuals and entities, including Lashkar-e-Tayyiba, Jaish-e-Muhammad, and their affiliates.

In the context of the robust US-India partnership, Ambassador Rice discussed the government’s shared commitment with India to pursue peace and regional stability and pledged to deepen collaboration on counterterrorism matters including on UN terrorist designations.
