The US today said it does not support declaring Pakistan a 'terrorist state' but will continue to work with the governments in the region to eliminate safe havens which also pose a threat to India.

Asked if the government would support a bill in the Congress and an online petition that the US should declare Pakistan a 'terrorist state', Kirby at his daily press briefing said: "I have not seen anything specifically about the - such a bill, and obviously we don't."

"So we're going to continue to work with the governments in the region to try to address these common threats and challenges, and we've always said that more can be done about the safe havens and that's - we're going to, again, try to work as cooperatively as we can to that end," Kirby said.
