Pakistan will remain a key US ally, says Kasuri

Pakistan Foreign Minister Khursheed Mehmood Kasuri has said that no matter who wins the next US presidential elections, Pakistan will remain a key ally of Washington.

Hamburg, May 29 : Pakistan Foreign Minister Khursheed Mehmood Kasuri has said that no matter who wins the next US presidential elections, Pakistan will remain a key ally of Washington.

Kasuri said the United States considers Pakistan a key asset in its war against terrorism and its cooperation is considered crucial for the West's mission in Afghanistan.

"Both countries (Pakistan and the US) have found it in their interest to cooperate with each other and I think those conditions will not disappear," The News quoted him, as saying in an interview on the sidelines of an EU-Asian foreign ministers' meeting here.

"Even if there is a change of (US) policy on Iraq, my own assessment is that Afghanistan will remain important to the next administration," he added.

"Pakistan has a fundamental role to play, and is of fundamental importance for the future of Afghanistan," Kasuri said, adding that he would meet his Afghan counterpart in Potsdam on Wednesday on the sidelines of a Group of Eight Foreign Ministers' meeting.

He admitted that relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan have deteriorated sharply in recent months, as Taliban insurgents gather strength in Afghanistan.

"Both countries understand the difficulties, the international community understands the difficulties, and it's in that spirit that I plan to discuss these problems with (my Afghan counterpart) in a very cooperative spirit," Kasuri said.

"The international community must remain very determined and its resolve must not be weakened by the difficulties that we are facing," he added.
