The US says it always encourages India and Pakistan to negotiate their differences peacefully, concerned as it is when tensions rise in the region.

"Obviously, we're concerned when tensions rise in that region," state department deputy spokesman Robert Wood told reporters on Wednesday commenting on reports of a resurgence of tensions in Kashmir with India alleging that infiltrators from Pakistan had killed a number of people.

"And, you know, as our general policy, we've always encouraged the governments of India and Pakistan to negotiate their differences peacefully," he said.
