Pakistan can be better ally against terror: Kerry



Pakistan can be better ally against terror: Kerry Kabul: US Senator John Kerry says Pakistan could be a better partner in the fight against terrorists.

In Afghanistan on Saturday, the chairman of the powerful Senate Foreign Relations Committee said that the United States wants Pakistan to be a real ally in combating terrorism and that Islamabad could do some things better.

Kerry's trip to Afghanistan and later Pakistan comes as the relationship between Washington and Islamabad is frayed over the unilateral US raid on Pakistani soil that killed Osama bin Laden.

Pakistani officials have denied that they knew that the world's most-wanted terrorist was hiding in Abbottabad, Pakistan, for several years.

In his stop in the Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif, Kerry also said the US was committed to working with the Afghan people.
