The US believes India and Pakistan “need to keep building a better relationship” and “work together” on issues like Kashmir, said US State Department spokesperson Marie Harf.
Asked at a news briefing about Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s reported comments that
Kashmir could trigger a fourth war between India and Pakistan, Harf replied, “I didn’t actually see those comments, so I don’t want to respond to comments I haven’t seen. “We’ve been very clear that this is an issue we think needs to be discussed directly between Pakistan and India.” The US recently spurned attempts by Sharif to get it to play a mediatory role in resolving the Kashmir issue.
