US mum on cooperation received from Pak on California shooting

Washington: The US today refrained from making any comment on the co-operation it is receiving from Pakistan on the California shooting incident last week in which one of the suspects was a Pakistani national.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters that he would not comment on this issue as the matter is under investigation.

“This is something that the (US) Attorney General was asked about and she refrained from specifically describing the level of coronation that we’ve gotten from a variety of international partners in investigating this incident,” Earnest said.

“And so for that reason, I’m going to delve into any of the details of those conversations,” he said in response to a question.

The FBI is leading the probe into the killing of 14 people by Pakistani national Tashfeen Mailk and her husband Syed Rizwan Farook on Wednesday.

US President Barack Obama has described this as an act of terror.
