US not to dictate India, Pak on scope of their bilateral talks

By Super Admin

Bangalore, Feb 18 (ANI): US Ambassador to India Timothy J. Roemer has said that India and Pakistan should decide the agenda of their bilateral talks.

"India and Pakistan need to talk and remain engaged to improve bilateral ties. It's important to talk because the terrorists don't want that to happen. Their (terrorists) agenda is to disrupt the democratic process and values of freedom and liberty we all cherish," Roemer told reporters here on Wednesday.

"We are always in favour of India talking to Pakistan. Our consistent position has been that both the countries should engage in bilateral dialogue on all issues," he added.

He also offered FBI help in the investigation into the Pune bomb blast last week.

"If the Indian government, at some point, wants any help, want any assistance, whether it's FBI assistance or other kinds of help, we are welcome to work with them," he said.

On David Coleman Headley connection to the Pune blast, he said: "We will continue to entertain and evaluate all the leads as they go forward". (ANI)
