US asks Pakistan to close all terrorist safe havens

US has asked Pakistan to close all terrorist safe havens and target all terrorist groups, including those that target neighbouring countries. This was stated by White House Deputy spokesperson Mark Toner in Washington after India made a strong pitch at the UN for isolating nations who nurture, paddle and export terror.
Toner reiterated that it is the longstanding American position that the US believes India and Pakistan really stand to benefit from the normalisation of relations. He said, the US wants to see Pakistan better able to respond to the threat that terrorism poses and terrorist groups that seek refuge in its territory.
