US concerned, not to get involved
Washington, Sept 25: Voicing concern over the continued violence and disturbance in Kashmir, US Saturday said it would not like to get involved in the issue.
“Our position has been consistent for many years. We regret the loss of lives in the current unrest and view it as an internal issue of India,” US Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, William Burns told a New Delhi-based newspaper. Burns said the Obama administration, while concerned about the violence and disturbance in the Kashmir, is not keen to be involved in the Indo-Pakistan dispute over the region.
“We welcome the efforts of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who has courageously sought to improve relations with Pakistan,” Burns further added.
He said that it was for India and Pakistan to decide “the pace, scope and character of the dialogue” related to Kashmir and other issues of bilateral importance.
