Strategic dialogue broadening Pak-US relationship: Pak envoy to US

Washington, Mon, 22 Nov 2010 ANI

Washington, Nov 22(ANI): Pakistan's Ambassador to the United States Hussain Haqqani has said that both countries are working to broaden their relationship through a strategic dialogue.


"We have decided to move past the transactional nature of the relationship and that means we have to create a level of predictability and some breadth in the relationship through the mechanism of strategic dialogue," the Daily Times quoted Haqqani, as saying.


He also lauded the Obama administration's commitment for a long-term partnership with Pakistan through the multi-year Kerry-Lugar-Berman economic assistance measure.


"That basically reassures Pakistan that this time the US is not going to walk away in any precipitating manner as they did soon after the imposition of Pressler sanctions following the Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan," Haqqani said.


During an interaction with American experts and South Asian policy analysts at Washington's Atlantic Council, Haqqani also drew attention to close anti-terror and intelligence cooperation between the two sides.


"Partnership means that you will disagree sometimes. There will not be a hundred percent congruence of views or of interests.


But, at the same time, we are committed to the fact that we are America's allies and the Americans are our allies. We have to understand each other's concerns. We may sometimes disagree on what we want," Haqqani said. (ANI)
