US NSA Susan Rice reiterates US' support to bring perpetrators of terrorism to justice

United States National Security Advisor (NSA) Susan E. Rice called up her Indian counterpart Ajit Doval on Wednesday and strongly condemned the attack on the Indian Army Brigade headquarters in Uri and offered her condolences to the victims and their families.

“Highlighting the danger that cross-border terrorism poses to the region, Ambassador Rice reiterated our 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,” said a White House release.

Rice affirmed US President Barack Obama’s commitment to redouble efforts on bringing justice to the perpetrators of terrorism throughout the world.

She also discussed and shared US’ commitment to pursue peace and regional stability and ‘pledged to deepen collaboration on counter-terrorism matters including on UN terrorist designations’.
