    US looks away as Pak asks for help- TIMESNOW.tv - Latest Breaking News, Big News Stories, News Videos

    Two days after Pakistan asked for US's help to bring India to the dialogue table, the US has looked away saying it is up to India and Pakistan to resolve issues themselves.

    Just two days earlier, Pakistan's Foreign Minister wooed the international community asking the US to bring India to the dialogue table. But Pakistan’s attempts failed with the US snubbing Pakistan, categorically ruling out any mediating role for Washington in Indo-Pak disputes.

    U.S Secretary of State Hillary Clinton issuing a strong statement saying that the impetus for dialogue must come from the two countries themselves, adding that India and Pakistan themselves need to push for dialogue.

    What is perhaps more stinging for Pakistan is US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s comments on the Kashmir dispute saying that no one on the outside could solve these problems but that the US has encouraged both Pakistan and India to resume dialogue and talk about everything, including Kashmir.

    "We know that no one on the outside can solve these problems. It can only be solved by the two countries themselves,” said Clinton on Monday (December 14).

    These strong statements from the US’s most powerful woman seem to be aimed at deflecting Pakistan’s overtures for more US help.

    Its a news...a fact that happened..and is reported......yes India remembers US not listening when India complained about Pakistan....

    In fact the whole world looks at Pakistan with some degree of skepticism.....look what Pakistan has achieved....all without any help....
