Pakistan can be better ally against terror: Kerry

Last Updated: Saturday, May 14, 2011 - 23:32

Kabul: US Senator John Kerry says Pakistan
could be a better partner in the fight against terrorists.

In Afghanistan on Saturday, the chairman of the powerful
Senate Foreign Relations Committee said that the United States
wants Pakistan to be a real ally in combating terrorism and
that Islamabad could do some things better.

Kerry`s trip to Afghanistan and later Pakistan comes
as the relationship between Washington and Islamabad is frayed
over the unilateral US raid on Pakistani soil that killed
Osama bin Laden.

Pakistani officials have denied that they knew that
the world`s most-wanted terrorist was hiding in Abbottabad,
Pakistan, for several years.

In his stop in the Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif,
Kerry also said the US was committed to working with the
Afghan people.
