ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office spokesperson Tehmina Janjua said Pakistan and the United States are in close contact with each other, Express 24/7 reported on Sunday.

The spokesperson said Pakistan wants an undisputed relation with US and authorities on both sides shall avoid giving undue statements.

Janjua was talking about Cameron Munter's statement, in which he said that Pakistan is having strong links with the Haqqani Network.

As reported earlier, the US ambassador to Pakistan, Munter said the Pakistan-based Haqqani militant network was behind last week’s Kabul siege and there is evidence linking the group to the Pakistan government.

In blunt comments broadcast by Radio Pakistan on Saturday, Ambassador Munter said: “Let me tell you that the attack that took place in Kabul a few days ago that was the work of the Haqqani network.

Janjua said that extensive dialogue is the need of the hour to strengthen the relations between the two countries.

Janjua added that Munter's recent statement would be brought under discussion in the upcoming ministers meetings.

Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly mentioned Tehmina Janjua as a minister. The correction has been made.

The game is up. The US finally realized that Afghanistan and India were right that our dear Pakistan cannot be trusted. Good Pakistanis are losing the battle against our criminals, thieves, and terrorists. Please fight back!
