The US on Friday termed as "positive development" the resumption of dialogue between India and Pakistan. "We are very encouraged by the positive signals coming out of these talks," State Department spokesman Ian Kelly told reporters, referring to the talks Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had with his Pakistani counterpart Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani. "The initial indications are that these are positive developments," Mr. Kelly said, without going into details. The talks were held in Egypt's Sharm-el-Sheikh on Thursday on the sidelines of the NAM summit, during which the two leaders agreed that a dialogue between the two countries is the only way forward.
