Mattis was speaking after talks with Indian leaders aimed at deepening military ties. India has long accused Pakistan of harbouring militants on its soil.

“There can be no tolerance of terrorist safe havens. As global leaders, India and the United States resolve to work together to eradicate this scourge,” he said in a statement. He also said Washington welcomed Indian efforts to help stabilise the situation in Afghanistan.
