Washington: The US is committed to its relationship with Pakistan, a State Department spokesman said on Wednesday as Pakistan`s powerful ISI chief Lt Gen Ahmed Shuja Pasha arrived here on a day-long visit.
"We value our partnership with Pakistan. It`s not always easy but it`s certainly vital, and it`s in both our shared interests. We`re strongly committed to it," State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters at his daily news conference.
"You know, it`s important to note, with all the talk about military and security assistance, our civilian assistance does continue without any restrictions," Toner said in response to a question.
