    US National Security Advisor Susan Rice and her Indian counterpart Ajit Doval called on Pakistan to more effectively counter cross-border terrorism during a phone call on Wednesday, National Security Council spokesperson Ned Price said in a press release.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Rice strongly condemned the September 18 cross-border attack on Indian forces and reaffirmed the US commitment to redouble efforts in the war against terrorism.

    "Highlighting the danger that cross-border terrorism poses to the region, Ambassador Rice reiterated our [US] expectation that Pakistan take effective action to combat and delegitimize United Nations-designated terrorist individuals and entities, including Lashkar-e-Tayyiba, Jaish-e-Muhammad, and their affiliates," the release stated.
