Af­ter senators, Con­gress­men seek thaw in Indo-Pak ties

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Global -

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.
