Indo-Pak dialogue `very constructive` step: US
Washington: Describing as "very constructive"
the resumption of the Indo-Pak dialogue, the US has said it is
important that the two countries continue cooperation on
multiple fronts, including counter-terrorism.
"We said last week and continue to say that dialogue
between India and Pakistan is a very constructive one," State
Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters.
He said it is important that he dialogue continues. "We
want to see cooperation on many fronts, including
counter-terrorism, between the two countries."
The United States, Toner said on Friday, has engaged with
Pakistani government at high levels, from the Secretary of
State to the CIA Director, to address some of the difficult
issues, but also to say that the US is committed to working
with Islamabad in a constructive way on counter-terrorism.
"Pakistan, as we`ve said many, many times, is touched by
- in a significant, profound way - the threat of terrorism.
They`ve lost a lot of people to terrorism in Pakistan."
Responding to questions, Toner said no date has been set
for the next round of the US-Pak Strategic Dialogue, but the
two countries are carrying out talks at multiple levels.
"I don`t believe there`s any date for the next plenary
session of the Strategic Dialogue. It has yet to be scheduled.
...we have high-level engagement with Pakistan, as well as the
substantive working groups continue to meet as well," he said.
"In fact, on July 5th, our Assistant Secretary of State
for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement, William
Brownfield, will be in Islamabad to lead the Strategic
Dialogue Working Group meeting on counter-terrorism and law
enforcement with his Pakistani counterparts. So while there
has been no date set yet for the plenary, the working groups
do continue to meet on a regular basis," he said.
