Washington: The US Tuesday said Pakistan and it shared similar interest in getting the region rid of al-Qaeda terrorists.

"Beyond saying that our counterterrorism work with Pakistan continues, that these issues have not always been smooth, sometimes our work together is complex, but we share an interest with Pakistan in ridding the region of al-Qaeda, and that work will continue," the State Department spokesperson, Victoria Nuland, told reporters at her daily news conference.

"We share an interest with Pakistan in ridding that country, that region of al-Qaeda. We've worked on it together for many years, and our work will continue," she said responding to questions about the steps being taken by Pakistan against al-Qaeda leaders.
