To calm the India that is on the boil after the Uri attack that claimed the lives of its 18 soldiers, the US National Security Advisor Susan Rice called her Indian counterpart Ajit Doval and condemned the attack.
Rice said White House expects Pakistan to take "effective action to combat and delegitimise" UN-designated terrorist groups.
Spokesperson of the US National Security Council Ned Price "affirmed President Obama's commitment to redouble our efforts to bring to justice the perpetrators of terrorism throughout the world".
This is the first official condemnation from the US after the Uri attack
"Ambassador Rice discussed our shared commitment with India to pursue regional peace and stability and pledged to deepen collaboration on counter-terrorism matters including on UN terrorist designations," Price added.
