Following Monday’s Modi-Trump meeting in Washington DC, Pakistan has accused the US of "speaking India’s language".
"It seems as though the blood of Kashmiris in not at all important to the US, and international laws relating to human rights do not apply to Kashmir," said Pakistan's interior minister Chaudhry Nisar on Tuesday, according to the Dawn.
Nisar also said they will continue their 'Kashmir freedom' campaign.
The United States on Monday designated Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin as a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist”. Pakistan came out in defence of Salahuddin and said the US’ designation was “unjustified”.
In September 2016, Salahuddin vowed to block any peaceful resolution to the Kashmir conflict, threatened to train more Kashmiri suicide bombers, and vowed to turn the Kashmir valley "into a graveyard for Indian forces."
Following PM Modi's meeting with Donald Trump, the US issued a joint statement.
"The leaders called on Pakistan to ensure that its territory is not used to launch terrorist attacks on other countries. They further called on Pakistan to expeditiously bring to justice the perpetrators of the 26/11 Mumbai, Pathankot, and other cross-border terrorist attacks perpetrated by Pakistan-based groups," the statement said.
