WASHINGTON - The new British Foreign Secretary William Hague said after talks with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday that they discussed the situation in Pakistan and efforts to stabilise Afghanistan, among other subjects. He said that UK and US share 'common goals in Pakistan, without clearly specifying what they were. 'We discussed the closely-related situation in Pakistan where we and the US share common goals and indeed we have stated discussing ways to enhance and strengthen our cooperation and support that we give to Pakistan, he told reporters, standing next to Secretary Clinton at the State Department. Pakistan alongwith Afghanistan and Iran were the major issues of discussions with Mrs. Clinton, when Hague on his first overseas trip as the Foreign Secretary met her. The unresolved Middle East dispute also came under discussion. The first meeting between the two leaders, after the formation of the new British government lasted for more than an hour. Mrs. Clinton had met Hague last year when the latter was the shadow Foreign Secretary. Both Mrs. Clinton and Hague conceded that Afghanistan, however, was their top priority where the international community led by the US is engaged in war against al Qaeda and the Taliban. Asserting that the new British Government shares the US perspective on Afghanistan, Hague said: 'That is why we say we will give the time and support for the strategy in Afghanistan to succeed. 'Of course, the new administration in Britain will take stock of how it can best do that, he added. 'And that includes enhancing and reinforcing the cooperation between the United Kingdom and the United States at the highest level so we have a clear, shared perspective on what we are doing. Emerging from the meeting, Mrs. Clinton said that the United States and the United Kingdom are firmly committed to the NATO mission in Afghanistan, and they support the efforts by the Afghan government to fight corruption and build a stable and secure government and country. 'We will continue our very close consultations on these matters going forward, she added. 'We talked indeed about our joint effort in Afghanistan, and which the Prime Minister has made our top priority in foreign affairs, where we will give the strategy, the NATO strategy, and the agreements made at the London conference the time and support to succeed, Hague added.
