US praises Indo-Pak talks plan, says its a win-win situation

Washington, Fri, 06 Apr 2012 ANI

Washington, Apr 6(ANI): The United States has praised plans for Indo-Pak talks as it ries to diffuse tensions in ties caused by Washington's 10 million dollar bounty on Jamaat-ud Dawa head Hafiz Saaed.

"To us, it's a win-win situation when Pakistan and India are engaging in dialogue, are talking to each other and are building better cooperation," The News quoted US State Department spokesperson Mark Toner, as saying.

Toner said the reward for Lashkar-e-Taiba founder Hafiz Saeed was the result of a "long process" by security officials in the State Department and had "no relation" to US diplomacy in South Asia.

"We certainly don't want it to impact on his visit to India. We're not playing some sort of strategic game here. We're just trying to prosecute this individual," he added.

Toner also pointed to Lashkar-e-Taiba's claims of responsibility in attacks, including the 2010 assault on hotels in Kabul and the 2001 strike on the Indian parliament that had sparked off tensions between India and Pakistan.

His statement came ahead of Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari's visit to India. (ANI)
