Pak gets kick from US: Pakistan responsible for current Indo-Pak tension

New Delhi: In a direct to snub to Pakistan, the US has blamed Pakistan for the escalation of tensions between Indian and Pakistan. A terrorist attack like the one in Uri "escalates tensions", United States said, while asking Pakistan to take action against UN-designated terror outfits and delegitimise them.

"Obviously, an (terrorist) attack like that (in Uri) escalates tensions. What I don't want to do is try to get into, you know, some sort of broad characterisation one way or the other but obviously an attack like this is horrific and...", the State Department Spokesman John Kirby said. (Agencies)
