Quizzed about reported statements by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on crossing borders to kill terrorists, the Biden administration stated the U.S. wouldn’t contain itself on the matter however “encouraged India and Pakistan to avoid any escalation and find a resolution through dialogue”.

U.S. State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller was responding to questions at a information convention on April 16 on alleged operations by India in different international locations to remove terrorists.

When requested if Mr. Modi and Mr. Singh’s feedback may be seen as “confessions” on the alleged “assassination of [Khalistani separatist Hardeep Singh] Nijjar in Canada, [designated terrorist Gurpatwant Singh] Pannun’s murder-for-hire plot in New York, and killings in Pakistan”, Miller stated the US won’t become involved within the matter.

“The United States is not going to get into the middle of this, but we do encourage both India and Pakistan to avoid escalation and find a resolution through dialogue,” the State Department spokesperson stated.

To a query on why the U.S. has not thought-about sanctions on India over the matter, Mr. Miller stated, “I am never going to preview any sanctions actions, which is not to say that there are any coming. But when you ask me to talk about sanctions, it’s something that we don’t discuss openly.” Earlier this month, Mr. Singh, referring to New Delhi’s assertive strategy to coping with cross-border terrorism, had stated if terrorists attempt to disturb peace in India or perform terror actions, a befitting response might be given, and in the event that they run away to Pakistan, India will enter the neighbouring nation to kill them.

The Defence Minister was responding to a query on a report by British newspaper ‘The Guardian’ that claimed Indian intelligence businesses carried out assassinations of terrorists in Pakistan as a part of an emboldened strategy to nationwide safety after 2019.
