ISLAMABAD: The United States Ambassador in Pakistan Cameron Munter Tuesday said that talks did not end at Nato supply restoration, adding that there was a lot to do for economic development, and to eliminate terrorism.
The US ambassador, during an interview with BBC Urdu, said that talks did not end at Nato supply restoration, adding that the Salala debacle had strained diplomatic relations between the two uneasy allies – however, they are now trying to undo the damage done by seven months of tension.
The US ambassador revealed that Imran Khan, PTI chief, and Nawaz Sharif, PML-N President, both were supporters of United States. Munter further said that Pakistan has to become part of solution not problem.
He said the Nato attack on Salala check-post was taken in hustle. He said that blockade of Nato supply had split away Pakistan from 50 friends countries.
Asked about the threat Pakistan was facing from home-grown Taliban insurgents, the top US diplomat said, “We want Pakistan to be a sovereign state – by sovereign I mean the state should have its writ on its soil.”
