Washington, March 10 (KMS): The Biden administration has said that the US supports a constructive dialogue and meaningful conversation between Pakistan and India.
State Department Spokesperson Ned Price, in response to a question regarding meditation for talks between India and Pakistan, said: “Because these are decisions for the countries themselves. If they agree on a particular role for the United States, the United States is prepared to, as a partner to both countries, support that process in any way that we responsibly can.”
“Ultimately, it is not for the United States to determine the modalities or the way in which India and Pakistan engage one another. What we support is constructive dialogue, meaningful diplomacy between India and Pakistan, in the first instance to resolve long-pending conflicts,” Price said.
The US, he said, supports constructive dialogue. “We support diplomacy between India and Pakistan to resolve, again, another set of long-pending disputes. We are partners. We are willing to support that process in any way that they deem appropriate. But ultimately, these are decisions that India and Pakistan themselves are going to have to make,” he said.
