United States of America's Secretary of State John Kerry reportedly asked Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to "prevent all terrorists" from using the country's territory as a safe haven, PTI reported on Tuesday. During a bilateral meeting in New York, Kerry also reportedly raised concerns about the attack on an Indian army installation in Uri and called for restraint in the development of Pakistan's nuclear weapons programme.

Sharif met Kerry and British Prime Minister Theresa May in separate meetings on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly session in New York, in an effort to get the US and the United Kingdom to intervene in Islamabad's disputes with New Delhi.

Washington said it will continue to ask Pakistan to do more to restrain terror groups seeking refuge within its borders, NDTV reported. US State Department spokesperson Mark Toner said, "We have seen some progress; we want to see more, and I think moving forward we will just continue to work closely and try to encourage greater counter-terrorism cooperation with Pakistan, but also within the region," PTI reported.

India said it has found evidence linking the Uri attack, one of the deadliest strikes on an Indian army installation, to Pakistan. New Delhi has also decided to "diplomatically isolate" Pakistan at all international fora even as Sharif continues to raise the issue of alleged human rights violations in Kashmir at the United Nations meet.

Sharif reportedly told May that Jammu and Kashmir must be allowed its right to self-determination. He said, "If the international community does not succeed in asking India to immediately end state oppression on the innocent people in Jammu and Kashmir, then this would encourage India to increase the intensity of the continuing state atrocities."
