Washington: The relationship between US and
Pakistan is at "crisis", and it appears that intelligence services of both the nations cannot work together, a powerful American Senator has said.

"The (US-Pak) relationship is at a crisis," Diana
Feinstein, who chairs the Senate Select Committee on
Intelligence, was quoted as saying by the MSNBC.

"I think both sides do want to de-escalate the crisis.
However, those tests that were set up to show that Pakistan
intelligence service and the American intelligence service
could work together have failed," she said.

Feinstein said: "In other words, specific targets were
put out on four occasions, and the Pakistanis essentially went
before, and all these target areas were emptied out before the
military -- the Pakistani military and others -- got to them."

"So this was really a crisis in confidence."

On recent terror attacks in Mumbai, the Congresswoman
said so far there is no intelligence information available on
who were behind the bombings.

"Not at this time. I don`t have any information that
indicates with any kind of specificity where this attack came
from," she added.
