The quote from six years ago just goes to show that the US has always given conflicting statements. At one time it stated it felt Pakistan’s nukes were safe, while just a week before PM Sharif was to meet with President Obama in the United States, the US was mulling over regulating Pakistan’s nuclear development.

"In this dysfunctional relationship, both the US and Pakistan have interests and expectations that the other cannot deliver on," said Michael Kugelman, a South Asia analyst at the Washington-based Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars before the talks. Nothing has changed. The distrust is still present, but in the past the US needed us, as a support in the War on Terror. As the narrative has evolved, Pakistan has become the scapegoat. The US has India to sell guns to, and the Afghans have Indians to buy guns from. It may be too early to say, but Pakistan’s isolation has started. While the US has become more distrusting, Pakistan has become more earnest in its fight against terror. However, there is just no pleasing the US.
