The U.S. and Pakistan have maintained a close working relationship for over a decade now. It is no secret that we have faced challenges and obstacles along the way. But we have never let the importance of achieving our shared peace objectives out of sight. Simply put, it is important to remain unified and build on our improving relationship as we move forward. Our officials have been meeting regularly to address our shared concerns in the region. The recent acts of terror on both sides of the Afghanistan and Pakistan border reiterate the importance of shared cooperation against our common enemies. We remain fully optimistic in regard to the future of our relationship, and hope to work together for the region’s security and stability.
