Washington: The US supports the ability of journalists to freely report on countries around the world, the White House said today on being asked about the Pakistan government's decision asking the two Indian journalists based in Islamabad to leave the country within a week.  


“Well, I'm not familiar with the specifics (of the case), and I don't know all of the details,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters at his daily news conference.

He was responding to a question about the decision of the Pakistan government asking the two Indian journalists—Press Trust of India's (PTI) Snehesh Alex Philip and Hindu newspaper's Meena Menon—to leave the country within a week without giving any reason.

“As a general principle, we support the ability of journalists to freely report on countries around the world, every country, and that would include Pakistan and that would include Indian journalists in Pakistan and Pakistani journalists in India.
