State Department spokesman John Kirby told reporters yesterday that he was not aware whether Kashmir or the November 26, 2008 Mumbai terror attacks by Pakistan based Lashkar-e-Taiba had come up during Wednesday meeting between Sharif and Kerry.

"No, I'm well aware of the lives lost in the Mumbai attacks. Look, I don't have great detail in terms of every item discussed," he said when asked if the Mumbai attacks in which six American lives were lost among 164 people killed and Kashmir were discussed.

"As for Kashmir, all I would say is we continue to be concerned about any violence along the Line of Control," Kirby said.

"And we continue to urge the governments of both India and Pakistan to reduce tensions along that line and to resume dialogue to address these issues. This is for the two parties to work out”, he added.

Kirby said Kerry met 'Sharif to follow up on some of the security-related conversations that he had with Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in October.'
