The United States has reacted to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s most recent statement regarding terrorism. A spokesman for the US State Department Matthew Miller said he would urge communication between the two countries to settle.


During a recent political event, Prime Minister Modi and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh declared that “India will not hesitate to kill terrorists in their homes”. After they made their remarks, Miller said that while the US would not intervene, “We do encourage both India and Pakistan to avoid escalation and find a resolution through dialogue.”
India has reiterated time and time that it cannot condone terrorism to strengthen its relations with Islamabad and that it will not tolerate cross-border terrorism. According to New Delhi, it is the responsibility of Islamabad to establish a friendly environment free from violence, hatred, and terror.

Rajnath Singh: “India is prepared to assist ‘incapable’ Pakistan, but…”

Rajnath Singh stated in an interview with ANI that Pakistan ought to take strong action against cross-border terrorism if its intentions are known.
Miller also avoided talking about “sanctions” on India about the purported plot to kill Khalistani terrorist Gurpatwant Singh Pannun.
“I am never going to preview any sanction actions, which is not to say that there are coming,” he declared. “We don’t talk about sanctions openly, though,” he added.

“New India teaches lessons instead of tolerating the pain of terrorism,” claims PM Modi

India has labelled Gurpatwant Singh Pannun as a terrorist, and he has threatened India on numerous occasions. According to the indictment filed by the US Justice Department, Nikhil Gupta, an Indian national who is presently detained, is accused of killing Pannun for hire.

In the Pannun case, the US claims it is “working with India to hold those responsible accountable.”
Before US authorities foiling the hitman’s purported assassination attempt on Pannun, the US Justice Department had asserted that Gupta had been approached by an unnamed Indian government employee to engage a hitman. India established a committee to look into the claims of the thwarted assassination attempt last year.
