Only talks can produce results between India and Pakistan: US

Only talks and dialogue between leaders of India and Pakistan can bring peace between the two South Asian neighbours, the US said today in the aftermath of the failed NSA-level talks last week.



Washington: Only talks and dialogue between leaders of India and Pakistan can bring peace between the two South Asian neighbours, the US said today in the aftermath of the failed NSA-level talks last week.

"(US) Secretary (of State, John) Kerry has said repeatedly that he wants the two nations to continue to work together, with constructive dialogue, to resolve their issues, and we understand that there are issues that are longstanding," State Department Spokesman John Kirby told reporters at his daily news conference.

"But that's what really needs to happen, is sitting down, dialogue, cooperation, talking through these things, and trying to work through some meaningful solutions," Kirby said in response to a question.

"What we want to see are the tensions decrease, and speculation about the potential use of nuclear weapons certainly isn't doing anything to help decrease tensions, if in fact those comments were made," he said when asked about statements coming from Pakistan that they have nuclear weapons.
