Islamabad: Relations between Pakistan`s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and US spy agency CIA - that were strained after the secret mission in Abbottabad that killed Osama bin Laden - have now improved, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said on Sunday.

Talking to journalists, Gilani said Pakistan has made it clear to the US that Abbottabad-like operation was not acceptable to it, The Nation reported.

Al Qaeda founder bin Laden was killed in a secret operation on May 02 by US Navy SEALs in Abbottabad, near the capital city of Islamabad. Pakistani security agencies were not informed about the mission.
Regarding a commission to investigate the Abbottabad incident, the Prime Minister said consultations with different political parties were underway and the commission would be constituted after completion of the process.
