After senators, Congressmen seek thaw in Indo-Pak ties
Washington: A group of American lawmakers have expressed concern over the situation in Jammu & Kashmir and urged the US envoys in India and Pakistan to facilitate deescalation of tension between the two countries as it presents “tremendous danger” to global peace and a clear national security risk for the US.
In a letter to the US ambassadors to India and Pakistan on Friday, seven Congressmen said there is risk that ties between India and Pakistan will continue to devolve as a result of the tension between the two nations following revocation of J&K’s special status. “This presents tremendous danger to global peace and a clear national security risk for the US,” the letter said. “It is of importance that we leverage our relationships with their government to de-escalate the situation,” it said.
