The U.S. has urged India and Pakistan to refrain from further military action as international pressure builds on the long-standing rivals to de-escalate the most serious flare-up in decades that’s seen fighter jets from both nations shot down.

"The potential risks associated with further military action by either side are unacceptably high for both countries, their neighbors, and the international community," said a White House National Security Council official who spoke condition of anonymity citing the sensitivity of the matter.
