Islamabad, August 27(ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani has urged a visiting delegation of US Senators to devise a common strategy to promote ties between both nations beyond 2014.
“It [would be] also instrumental in assisting each other in intelligence sharing and defence co-operation with a view to keep the region stable,” the Dawn quoted Gilani, as saying.
“As friends, we should accept that we have divergence of views, but we should learn to trust each other, as our relationship is too vital for both the countries,” the prime minister stated when a delegation of US Senators, led by Robert P. Casey, called on him.
During the meeting, Gilani reiterated that Pakistan wanted a sovereign, independent, stable and prosperous Afghanistan.
“We support the process of reconciliation in the country which is Afghan-led and Afghan-owned. Pakistan is part of solution and not part of problem,” he added. (ANI)
