"Both sides underlined the urgent need for Pakistan to take meaningful, irreversible, and verifiable action against terrorists and terrorist groups", the release said.
The US and Indian delegations also discussed strengthening cooperation on information sharing and other actions they can take to disrupt the ability of terrorists to travel.
Media reported this week that the United States circulated a UN Security Council resolution to blacklist Masood Azhar, head of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), after China blocked a similar measure a couple weeks ago.
While India has accused Pakistan of supporting the terrorists and having a "direct hand" in the incident, Pakistan, in turn, has rejected the allegations.
Jammu and Kashmir is a region that has been disputed by India and Pakistan since 1947 when both countries gained independence from the British Empire. The two countries have gone through three wars over the region, but the conflict has not been resolved. The unstable situation in the region has reportedly led to the emergence of extremist groups.
