Text of the State Department's comments on the Chinese regulations made at Washington DC on August 26, 2002:
Pakistan has been a very stalwart ally in the fight against terrorism. President Musharraf has announced some fairly bold measures within his own society to try to move Pakistan on a more moderate course, and our interest is in helping Pakistan move
'These kind of attacks are heinous and they prove that those who carry them out don't have the best interests of the Kashmiri people at heart, says the US State Department spokesman.
The US State Department says it continues to look for the kind of actions that both India and Pakistan can take to make this peace process move forward.
The official spokesman on the revised advisory for India and the reasons why the one on Pakistan remains still the same. Relevant excerpts.
The State Department steps in for damage control and says it's a commitment that's been made very clear, and that Musharraf stands by it.
The US State Department says it is encouraged by the pullback of Indian naval forces from the north Arabian Sea.
The US State department says it is still concerned about the mobilisation of armies.
Did Armitage read the riot act to Musharraf? How would US ensure that infiltration would be stopped permanently?
The tension still remains and a marginal progress can be recorded. We are indeed working, Deputy Secretary Armitage is in there trying to make it better, says the State Department.
But adds the state department: 'we are not prepared to say that we have seen the cessation that we are all looking for and that President Musharraf has promised.'
'"Mediator" is a particularly defined role, not a general one. But in general terms, we're in there; we're working with them; we're trying to help make progress.' Press Briefing May 31.
