New York: Amidst the rising tension between India and Pakistan over the attack on Indian Army camp by four terrorists backed by Pakistan, Prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday met US Secretary of State John Kerry ahead of his address at UNGA.
During the meeting, regional and international issues came under discussion, Radio Pakistan reported.
Prime Minister's Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz, Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmed Chaudhry, Pakistan's Ambassador to the UN Maleeha Lodhi and US Special Representative for Af-Pak Richard Olson were also present at the meeting.
Sharif, who is here to attend the 71th Session of United Nations General Assembly, called on the permanent members of the UN Security Council demanding that India should be forced to stop its alleged brutalities in Kashmir.
He has said he will highlight the Kashmir issue in his address at the UN General Assembly on Wednesday.
Heavily-armed militants stormed a battalion headquarters of the Indian Army in North Kashmir's Uri town in the wee hours yesterday, killing 18 jawans and injuring 19 others in the attack in which all four terrorists were neutralised.
It was the worst attack on the Indian Army in many years. India's DGMO Lt Gen Ranbir Singh has said all the four killed militants were foreign terrorists and had carried with them items which had Pakistani markings and that initial reports indicated that they belonged to Pakistan-based Jaish-E-Mohammed terrorist group.
