Islamabad, Mar 21 (ANI): US Ambassador to Pakistan Cameron Munter has said that the United States would wait for the conclusion of parliamentary debate on Pak-US relationship and would respond "openly and honestly".
He, however, acknowledged that while "some of things are not gonna be easy", it was important for Washington and Islamabad to "re-set and recalibrate" some of the processes important to the two countries.
"The main thing that we are looking forward (to) is that after the very unfortunate accident that we regret so much that took place on the 26th of November in Salala; after this pause, to making sure that we engage with one another that we take seriously the issues that both countries have, we take very seriously the agenda, that we think will come out of the discussions from the parliament and we look forward to discussing these issues and bringing our concerns to the table," The Dawn quoted him, as saying.
"What we really wanna do is very realistic and straight forward sets of discussions. There are people on both sides, in Pakistan and in the United States, who have felt disappointed because our expectations were very high. We wanna get past that disappointment," he added.
Munter said that while their relationship with the Pakistani military was hampered at the tactical level for sometime after the Nato attack on the Salala checkposts last year, cooperation between their intelligence agencies and diplomatic level continued.
He, however, added that his government would want to expand the military to military contacts from the current tactical level to the strategic level.
"Our intelligence agencies understand that we have a great deal in common. Those people who threaten Pakistan and those people who threaten America are the same people. We have been cooperating together and we will continue to do that," he added. (ANI)
