The U.S. Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs Alice Wells said on Wednesday it does not have the evidence that India is using the Afghan soil to plan terror attacks create trouble in Pakistan.
The U.S. is far from convinced with Pakistan’s narrative on India. She urged regional countries to respect each other’s sovereignty.
About the resumption of dialogue between Pakistan and India, she linked the progress to Pakistan’s commitment that it will not allow its territory to be used against India.
Regarding China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) she said, Washington did not object to infrastructure investment by China, but such investments should be transparent and meet the international standards.
Wells met civil and military officials in Islamabad.
