WASHINGTON - The United States Wednesday welcomed the talks between Foreign Ministers of Pakistan and India, saying that dialogue between the two South Asian nations was good for the region. "(India-Pakistan talks are) always a positive step. Always a productive or constructive in our view to see the two countries talking," State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters at his daily news briefing. "It's constructive for the region, it's constructive for both those countries. I'm not aware of what came out of them specifically, but more broadly, I can say that we always view that kind of dialogue as constructive," Toner said in response to a question from an Indian correspondent. Toner said he is not aware of any direct or indirect role played by the US in the peace talks between India and Pakistan.
