India back's  Hizbul Mujahideen, Group 
India welcomed the United States' blacklisting of Hizbul Mujahideen, the largest armed group in Indian-administered Kashmir, as a "foreign terrorist organisation.
The US Department of State said in a statement on Wednesday that Washington is freezing the group's assets to deny it "the resources it needs to carry out terrorist attacks". The US also prohibited Americans from having dealings with the armed group.
"We welcome the designation of the Hizbul Mujahideen as a terrorist organisation," Raveesh Kumar, India's foreign ministry spokesman, told reporters on Friday. 
"All of us are aware of what kind of terrorist activities they have conducted in the state of Jammu and Kashmir," he said, adding it was key to "end moral, diplomatic and material support" to such groups.
