Srinagar: The US State Department has said that U.S. policy on Kashmir remains unaffected despite designating Hizbul Mujahideen leader Syed Salahuddin as “a global terrorist”.
“Designation of Hizbul Mujahideen leader Syed Salahuddin as a global terrorist does not reflect a change in the US policy on Kashmir, our policy on Kashmir has not changed,” reports quoting a US State Department spokesperson said.
A State Department spokesperson had said that Washington saw Kashmir as a dispute that needed to be resolved peacefully, The Dawn said.
“The pace, scope, and character of any discussions on Kashmir is for the two sides to determine, but we support any and all positive steps India and Pakistan can take to forge closer relations,” The Dawn quoted State Department spokesperson as saying.
