US-Pakistan `partners with a common enemy`: Kerry
Islamabad: US Senator John Kerry on Monday called Pakistan and the United States "strategic partners with a common enemy" as he sought to ease distrust in the wake of the killing of Osama bin Laden.
Kerry said he had held "constructive conversations" with Pakistan`s leaders but reiterated "grave concerns" over the presence in Pakistan of the Al Qaeda terror chief and sanctuaries of US adversaries in Afghanistan.
"More importantly I explained that I am here with the backing of President (Barack) Obama, (US) ambassador (to Pakistan Cameron) Munter and their team to find a way to rebuild the trust between our two countries," he said.
"We must never lose sight of this essential fact. We are strategic partners with a common enemy in terrorism and extremism.
"Both of our countries have sacrificed... so much that it just wouldn`t make sense to see this relationship broken or abandoned," he added.
