U.S. Envoy: Washington Wants Reset In Relations With Pakistan

world | Mar 21, 2012 | By RFE/RL 

Cameron Munter, the U.S. ambassador to Pakistan, says Washington agrees that it's time for a reset in relations between Washington and Islamabad.

Munter made the remark during a visit to the volatile northwestern Pakistan city of Peshawar, not far from the Afghanistan border.

His visit came as the Pakistani parliament on March 20 began a debate about the future of Pakistani ties with Washington, after months of severely strained relations.

Munter said the United States wants to reach a deal with Pakistan on the reopening of ground supply routes from Pakistan to NATO-led forces in Afghanistan.

The routes were shut after the November NATO air attack that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.

That bloodshed, and other issues, led to a sharp deterioration in ties between the Pakistani government and Washington.
