Washington, Mon, 03 Dec 2012 ANI

Washington, Dec. 3 (ANI): The US State Department has said that the country's ties with Pakistan are now on firm grounds.

"The pace of interaction is much more back to normal now and puts the (Pak-US) relationship on this firmer footing we've both sought," The Dawn quoted State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland, as saying.

Nuland added that since July this year, the US and Pakistan have been working regularly on improving their strained ties.

She said both sides were looking at possibilities "to encourage increased investment and to open markets".

Nuland noted that US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had met President Asif Ali Zardari and Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar during the UN General Assembly in September. US special envoy Marc Grossman was in Pakistan in October and the two sides also held a number of working-group meetings, she said.

Khar is set to meet Clinton in Brussels on Tuesday on the sidelines of a NATO meeting to discuss bilateral issues. (ANI)
