Ambaasador Sherry Rehman urges US to take steps to rebuild relations with Pakistan

 

Islamabad has taken the first step by working towards restoring its NATO supply routes and now Washington should apologize over Salalah cross-border strikes that caused closure of the routes and end its controversial drone attacks into Pakistani territory to help rebuild the relaionship, Ambassador to the United States Sherry Rehman advocated Sunday. The Pakistani envoy wrote in an opinion piece in The Chicago Tribune that restoration of normalcy in Pakistan-U.S. relations would serve the cause of peace and security in the region and be a death blow to extremism afflicting the region. Ambassador Rehman’s opinion piece appeared as the US-led NATO and international partners gathered in the third largest American city for a critical summit to secure support for peace and stability in Afghanistan beyond 2014, when security responsibility is fully transferred to Kabul at the end of a long war, which has seriously hurt Pakistan.
