India, Pak ignore US advice
C K Arora in Washington
The Bill Clinton administration has said that India and Pakistan have not responded to its Wednesday's appeal for honouring their 1991 agreement designed to avert aerial clashes.
''We have been talking to them about it, and urging that they do so. I don't have any confirmation that both parties have indicated that they will do so,'' state department spokesman James P Rubin said yesterday.
The agreement forbids aircraft from flying within about six miles of the Indo-Pakistani border without prior notice and it lays down procedure to deal with violations.
Meanwhile, the US supported United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan's statement calling upon both countries ''to act in a responsible way to prevent further tragedy and to reduce tensions''.
