Pakistan to say `yes to US trainers, no to drones’
Washington: In a bid to ease ties with Washington, Pakistan will invite back US military trainers “as early as April or May”, said a report by Fox News.
However, Pakistan has said no to US drones in Pakistan, Dawn said quoting the Fox News report.
The relations between the US and Pakistan have been at an all-time low since 24 Pakistani troops were killed in a NATO cross border fire in November 2011.
Notably, a committee of the Pakistani Parliament is in process of reviewing the nature of Islamabad’s relationship with Washington.
“They (drones) will never be allowed back, at Shamsi or anywhere else,” a Pakistani official told Fox News.
However, Pakistan would open gates to US military trainers and resume close cooperation with the CIA in targeting militants.
“After this is presented to the Americans, a lot could happen very quickly,” the senior official said.
