Washington, DC: U.S. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) released the following statement in response to the terrorist attack in Kashmir last month:
“Pakistan has continued to allow terrorist organizations to operate within their borders, moving across borders and unchecked, allowing access into India. Most recently, there was another attack along the Line of Control on yet another Indian military camp in Kashmir; this, just after another attack that killed 19 Indian soldiers only two weeks ago. This is deeply troubling.
“People within the Pakistani government continue to provide tacit and overt support for terrorism. This is not new—this pattern of attacks has been occurring now for the past 15 years, and it must end. That’s why I’ve continued working in Congress to cut back U.S. assistance for Pakistan and increase pressure on Pakistan to stop this violence. In the past, the U.S. government took steps to increase pressure on Pakistan, and it’s time to revisit that approach. The Pakistan government must fully cooperate in the investigation of these attacks, take clear, verifiable actions to put an immediate stop to these cross border attacks, and prosecute all of those responsible. We stand in solidarity with India in the face of these attacks and will continue to work together in this fight against terrorism.”
