Lahore, Oct 29: US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in Lahore on Thursday, Oct 29.
Addressing media persons here, Clinton said that it is India and Pakistan to resolve their differences and hoped that both countries will resume their stalled dialogue.
Clinton said, "Obviously, we are hopeful that there will be a resumption of dialogue between Pakistan and India, because I think the threat that Pakistan faces is a threat that could destabilise the entire region."
During an interview to a Pakistani TV channel on Wednesday, Oct 28, Clinton said, "We believe that we have very important interests with Pakistan and with India. Now it would be a very important step for both India and Pakistan to work to resolve their differences," she said.
"But what we see as the direct threat to Pakistan right now comes from the violent extremism," she said.
"It will help improve trade and investment and it will create a better opportunity for Pakistan to prosper and progress, and that"s what I hope will happen," she added.
