US permanent representative to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Thursday made it abundantly clear that the United States will not tolerate the sheltering of  terror networks, especially those that are targeting India, by Pakistan.

“We cannot turn blind eye to those harbouring terrorists. We are communicating to Pakistan that this cannot be tolerated,” Nikki Haley said.

"Our relationship with Pakistan has changed as you would have noticed," she added.

Haley, who is in New Delhi as part of her India visit, added that India and the US must be global leaders in fight against terrorism, adding “we can and must do more”.

Though Haley conceded that China is important, she pointed out that Beijing’s expansion in the region is a matter of concern “for us and many others as it does not share democratic values”.

Referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vison for India-Pacific region that he had presented at the Shangri-la Dialogue, Haley said that President Trump also believed in that vision.

Underlining the importance of freedom of religion, Nikki Haley said that countries like India and US can only be held together by tolerance.
