Washington: The US State Department has said the country wants to engage Pakistan on the issue of counterterrorism in a cooperative spirit.
“We’re trying to engage with the Pakistani government after this parliamentary review. When it comes to counterterrorism, we are certainly going to listen to their views and share our own in a spirit, I think, of collaboration and cooperation,” the Daily Times quoted US State Department spokesman Mark Toner, as saying.
The spokesman, however, did not comment on possible future visits to Pakistan, after last week’s talks between the two sides failed to find common ground on some contentious issues in bilateral relations.
