Washington: The US on Wednesday said the delivery of

it has maintained a strong military-to-military relationship
with Islamabad, despite recent setbacks in their ties.
"The programme represented by this transfer shows that
despite setbacks in the bilateral relationship last year our
mil-mil cooperation remains ongoing," Pentagon spokesman
Commodore William Speaks said.
"We look forward to broadening, expanding, and improving
this relationship moving forward," Speaks said in response to
Pakistan on Monday had received the last of the 18 F-16
