Sultan Ahmed. | 11 years ago | Reply Mr.president, It is right to say, relations with the united states should be strengthen and delightful because both the countries have stable alliance against the war of terror but until American interests are safe in the region,Pakistan will have to play a role as guardian. It is an admitted fact that stable Afghanistan is in favor of Pakistan more than united states but spreading insurgency is not favor of Pakistan, Pakistan is doing more and more but it has some reservations regarding the behave of european countries. As for as Pakistan is concerned, it has decided to root out the insurgency from the region for this purpose unique sacrifices are being paid by the armed forces and people of Pakistan. Pakistan 's role has been recognized by the united states itself but assistance is not as such as must be.United states and other European states should play a due role in removing power crisis in Pakistan. Stable Pakistan is in favor of all.
