Pak-US Ties Will Be Tested In Future: Clinton
United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton last week met Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar at the Tokyo Summit on Afghanistan and expressed her belief that Pak-US relations were witnessing a marked improvement and revival after Pakistan agreed to reopen Nato supply lines, adding that the relationship would certainly be tested in the future.
A visibly spirited Hillary informed reporters that talks with Hina Rabbani Khar had been fruitful, and had cleansed the air of any bitterness that may have existed before, adding that both parties were now ready and willing to face recurring challenges. "We endeavour to take full advantage of the positive outcome of the new era of friendship and cooperation, which would safeguard the interests of both countries," she declared.
The top US diplomat told reporters that both Washington and Islamabad had been encouraged by the agreement to reopen the suspended Nato routes. "We are both encouraged that we've been able to put the recent difficulties behind us so we can focus on the many challenges ahead of us," Clinton further added.
