Washington: US has said in recent months there has been a shift in Pakistan’s thinking with regard to extremism as Islamabad has recognised the threat that these terrorists pose to its own security.
“We’ve had many, many direct, high-level conversations. We’ve seen a shift in Pakistan’s thinking in recent months. There’s been a great deal of activity over the past year where Pakistan has recognised the threat that these extremists pose to its own security,” State Department spokesman P J Crowley said.
“This will be a subject that we talk to Pakistan about later this month when we have the next round of our Strategic Dialogue,” Crowley said, adding the US is quite satisfied with the level of co-operation and co-ordination that it has with Pakistan.
“We understand that Pakistan has resources, military resources that have been directed towards the national response to the flood.”
