India, Pakistan ‘working for peace’: US
Islamabad: Disagreeing with the suggestion that India and Pakistan are exploiting an already explosive situation in the region, the US has said that both the nations are working for peace.
When asked to comment on reports that India and Pakistan were using recent clashes on the LoC to fan differences, State Department’s spokesperson Victoria Nuland said that ‘we’re all for peace, and what’s important is that the governments are talking’.
According to the Dawn, this is the fourth day in a row that the US State Department has commented on recent skirmishes along the Line of Control, urging both governments to show restraint.
Nuland further said that the US has made representations to both governments urging them to work together to determine the best course of action.
The US strongly supports their continued high-level dialogue that they are engaged in, she added.
According to the report, Nuland stressed that ‘this is the best way to work through these issues and end the violence and move back to where we had been’.
