"The United States is committed to seeing that those responsible for this attack face justice", said Mr Pompeo while a separate statement issued by the State Department said the U.S. was also "committed to working with our global partners" to achieve this goal.

The Indian government on Monday hit out at Pakistan, saying those responsible for the strike that left 166 people dead still roam free.
