Relationship with Pak guided with national interest: US

A US official said US` ties with Pakistan are guided with national interest.

Washington: America`s relationship with Pakistan is guided with its national interest, a top official said on Wednesday, in the wake of the WikiLeaks expose in which top US diplomats are seen expressing serious doubts over Islamabad`s sincerity in the war against terrorism.

"Our relations with Pakistan, with other countries are guided by our national interests and Pakistan`s national interests. Those haven`t changed by these revelations," the Sate Department spokesman PJ Crowley said.

“We are pursuing a strategic partnership with Pakistan because we face a common adversary. That doesn`t change either,” he said in response to a question at his daily news briefing.

“We have taken aggressive action. Pakistan has taken aggressive action. And we are helping Pakistan improve its military capability, improve its civilian capability.”

“That`s not going to change by what has happened here," Crowley said when asked about the WikiLeaks expose.
