Washington: Pakistan shares a "complicated" relationship with the US but remains vital for America`s success in the war against terrorism, the White House said.
"I think we have made clear that our cooperative relationship with Pakistan is important. It`s been complicated, obviously, but it is vital to our successful effort against terrorism and terrorists," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters.
"The cooperation we`ve received from Pakistan in the past has led to a variety of successes in our effort against terrorists. We look forward to continuing that cooperative relationship," he said.
Carney said there was no secret to the fact that this was a complicated relationship and at times a "difficult" one. "But it is an important relationship and one we`re committed to because the cooperation between the United States and Pakistan, between our governments, our militaries, our security services, our intelligence services, is so vital to America`s national security interests," Carney added.
