WASHINGTON: The United States on Wednesday welcomed Islamabad’s proposal for foreign ministerial Pakistan-India talks to address the continuing tensions between the two South Asian countries.
The US reaction came after Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar said that continued tensions along the Line of Control (LoC) are not in the interest of South Asian peace and proposed foreign ministerial level Pakistan-India talks to sort out the issue.
State Department Spokesperson Victoria Nuland said that the US was concerned about the spate of violence and favoured talks to deal with the situation between the two neighbours.“That is the right way” to address the issue, she said when asked about the Pakistani Foreign Minister’s proposal on the two countries’ foreign ministers getting together to resolve the issue.
