Khar agreed with Clinton that the Haqqani network was a threat to Americans and Pakistanis alike. Following the three and a half hours exhaustive meeting, a senior US state department official said that full range of issues were discussed and "counterterrorism remained the first and last most important agenda". "Haqqani networks involvement in attack on the US Embassy in Kabul was discussed and Secretary Clintons message was clear that something had to be done against Haqqani network". Clinton met Khar on Sunday in New York, a day after the U.S. ambassador to Islamabad cited evidence linking the network to the Pakistani government. The charge risked raising tensions in the anti-terror alliance.

Lashkar-e-Taibas presence in Pakistan, threat coming from Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan and safe heavens in Pakistan were also discussed and both sides pondered upon actions to encounter this problem that Pakistan and US can take jointly. "We must remember that thousands of Pakistani lives have been lost in this war", he recalled. On a question regarding US Ambassador to Pakistan Cameron Munters statement yesterday about having evidence of Pakistans links to Kabul attacks, the US official said that this was not raised in the meeting by Pakistan. On another query regarding the meeting of Army Chief Gen. Ashfaq Pervez Kayani and US Admiral Mike Mullen in Spain on Saturday, he said "both Clinton and Khar had been debriefed by their military leadership about what was discussed between Gen Kayani and Admiral Mullen". The official, talking about broad range of cooperation between both countries, said that Pakistani delegation raised the issue of support for Pakistani economy and US market access, upon which Clinton shared her vision about silk route for promotion of regional trade. "If we can figure out a problem together and then work on it jointly, that will be good", he said adding that both sides committed to working on such issues jointly in future. "We understand that there is work to do on US image in Pakistan and hope that Pakistanis appreciate the positive contribution of US for food-relief". He hinted that the ongoing strategic dialogue on counterterrorism and energy will benefit Pakistan. Meanwhile according to Pakistani officials, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Sunday, had extensive discussions on all facets of U.S.-Pakistan relations that the top Pakistani diplomat described as very constructive. It went very well, Khar said after the three-and-half hour meeting.
