US concerns to be addressed: Haqqani

Pakistani Ambassador to United States Husain Haqqani said that the relations between both the countries was facing many challenges, adding that he was looking forward to working together with the US in addressing the concerns of the US Congress.
Talking to a private TV channel, Haqqani said that the foreign office has made all out efforts to strengthen the relationship between Pakistan and United States.
He said that Pakistan persuaded 32 US Congress members to reject the bill presented before the US Congress panel that would have cut all Pakistani aid. We are thankful to the House Foreign Affairs Committee for defeating an amendment to the Foreign Assistance authorization bill that would have restricted all US security assistance to Pakistan,” he added.
Our efforts to present Pakistan’s case before Congress and to explain our difficulties and limitations continue, he said. Pakistan would still have several hurdles to climb and many misgivings to address before the Congressional process of aid authorization and appropriation is completed, he added.
Pakistan and the United States have a complex, multidimensional relationship. Both countries need each other, he said, adding that, occasionally there are differences between the best of allies, he said.
