US praises SM Krishna`s visit to Pakistan

The United States is pleased to see the progress made by India and Pakistan on visa issues.



Washington: The United States has praised the just concluded Pakistan visit of the Indian External Affairs Minister SM Krishna, noting that it is pleased to see the progress made by the two countries on visa issues.

"We strongly support increasing contact at the high level between Pakistan and India. We think the trip was a good thing, and we were pleased to see the visa progress that they made, which supports progress that they had made in the past on economic issues," State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland told reporters at her daily news conference here on Tuesday.

This is very much in line with the Secretary (of State`s) New Silk Road vision that the connections in that whole neighbourhood will grow stronger so that prosperity will grow for everyone, Nuland said in response to a question.

"Obviously, there`s more work to do, but whenever we see the Indian side, whenever we see the Pakistani side, we offer support for their efforts to talk to each other, because it`s in the interest not only of those two countries but the whole region," the spokesperson said.

Responding to a question, the US official said that the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was following the trip.
