Washington, July 14 (ANI): Welcoming the scheduled meeting between External Affairs Minister S M Krishna with his Pakistani counterpart Shah Mehmood Qureshi on July 15, the United States has clarified that it is not 'directly' behind the renewed contacts between the two South Asian neighbours.

Talking to reporters before leaving for a tour of Germany and South Asian region, President Obama's Special Envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard Holbrooke said the White House would support any effort through which tension between India and Pakistan is reduced.

"Anything that reduces tensions and increases confidence between Pakistan and India is certainly something we encourage and support, we are not directly involved (in the process)," The Daily Times quoted Holbrooke, as saying. (ANI)
