Influential US Senator John Kerry ruled out any link between Mumbai terror attacks and the Kashmir issue.

"I don't think...It has anything to do with Kashmir," Kerry said, adding that the Kashmir issue needs to be resolved by the two countries.

Talking to a group of journalists in Islamabad Tuesday night after winding up his tour to Pakistan, the Senator said that before the Mumbai incident, the two countries had made progress on various issues and had behaved responsibly.

"Hopefully they (will) get back on the track (of peace) and focus on larger issues," he added.
