ISLAMABAD - Acknowledging the sacrifices of Pakistan in the war against terror, the United States Ambassador to Pakistan Cameron Munter said his country wanted talks with Pakistan to resolve all issues, including the Salala checkpost incident.

In an exclusive interview to VOG, he said Washington and Islamabad should prefer negotiations regarding their mutual relations and the US was ready for talks on the Salala incident and the Nato supply to Afghanistan.

He said the US investors wanted to invest in Pakistan but they were looking for circumstances suitable for investment.

He said Washington was ready to extend financial aid to Pakistan and Afghanistan for their stability. He said the US acknowledged sacrifices of Pakistan in war against terror, which was a common issue for them.

“Terrorism is a core issue faced by Islamabad, Washington and Kabul,” he added.

He said distance in relations of both the countries must be bridged by mutual efforts.

Munter said a tripartite commission had been established with an aim to reducing the differences among the countries, as all the outstanding issues must be resolved amicably.

To a question regarding negotiations with Taliban, he said, “It is not yet certain how long it would take; however, the US wants peace in Afghanistan and an acceptable democratic government according to wishes of the Afghan people.”
