WASHINGTON: India and Pakistan should work together to improve their relationship, the United States has said, adding that it would welcome steps towards that end.
"It's really up for them to work-on together," State Department deputy spokesperson Marie Harf told reporters.
Harf was responding to questions related to the scheduled meeting between the foreign secretaries of India and Pakistan on August 25.
Indian Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh and her Pakistani counterpart Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry are likely to discuss the way forward in bilateral ties, which have made no headway since the interruption of dialogue process nearly two years ago.
An understanding about the meet was reached during the visit of Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to New Delhi in May to attend the swearing-in of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
