Washington: Pleased at the Memorandum of Understanding on transporting key supplies for NATO forces in Afghanistan through Pakistani soil, the United States has said that it is working to get their relationship back on track.

"We're pleased by this MOU, but our relationship, we continue to get it back on track and look to the future, and we have a number of issues to continue to work through with our Pakistani counterparts," the US State Department spokesperson Patrick Ventrell told reporters at a news conference here yesterday.

This MOU demonstrates increased transparency and openness between the governments in respect of Pakistan's sovereignty as requested by their parliament, Ventrell said.

"It also underscores our shared commitment to support Afghanistan and regional stability," he added.
