WASHINGTON: A top Pentagon official has said that Pakistan has an addiction of playing around with militant groups against India to achieve certain interests and this gets the country in all kinds of trouble.

According to a report published on The Times of India website, Michael Sheehan, assistant secretary of Defence for Special Operations/Low-Intensity Conflict, told United States (US) lawmakers that the country had been discussing these issues with Pakistan, but there had been no success.

We’ve had these conversations with them forever about that. I don’t see that changing. I don’t see any set of talking points that’s going to be delivered by some new diplomat that’s going to change their mind.
