WASHINGTON (Agencies) – Briefing the media in Washington on Wednesday, State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki said that the US supports Pakistan’s efforts to counter terrorism and bring perpetrators to justice, but we believe it s important efforts be consistent with principles of due process.

The US has sought additional information from Pakistan on its decision to establish military courts for trial of suspected terrorists as it wants to ensure that due process of law is followed, Jen Psaki said.

We have seen the reports (of the Pakistani parliament passing legislation allowing military courts for trial of suspected terrorists), and we re seeking additional information as the Pakistani government adopts measures necessary to institute them, she said.
