WASHINGTON: United States Thursday expressed ‘concern’ over the recent public appearance of Hafiz Saeed at a Difa e Pakisan rally in Karachi.

The statement issued by US State Department said that Lashkar e Taiba and Jamaat ud Dawa is internationally sanctioned because of its associates with al Qaeda.

It said that “We have and continue to urge the government of Pakistan to uphold its obligations in accordance with UN Security Council resolution 1267/1989.

Meanwhile on trilateral meeting in Islamabad, US said that we support the process of talks among Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran, adding that the regional states need to support the process if its going to be successful.

During a daily press briefing, US State Department's spokesman Victoria Nuland said that the US was not trying to stop legitimate trade in food, medicines and these kinds of things between Iran and its neighbours.

She said that US obviously object over the attitude of Iran to its nuclear obligations.
