Sarah Haider | 11 years ago | Reply Well first of all we must admit that the word Partnership is not the right word to describe the relationship between US and Pakistan. Partnership is to be used when both parties are somewhat near in spectra to each other. We are a developing country and USA is a superpower. Pakistan should not call itself a partner of the US but one of USA's Strategic Relation. Secondly if the government is so confident that they have a deep and broad Partnership then first and foremost issues such as Dr. Afia Siddiqui and the Drone attack killings should be put on the table and resolved before reaching out for the begging for IMF loans and talks on the next tranche's homecoming.
