US ready to give time to Pak to re-evaluate ties: Grossman

New Delhi, Fri, 20 Jan 2012 ANI

New Delhi, Jan.20 (ANI): President Barack Obama's Special Representative for the Af-Pak region, Marc Grossman, said Friday that Washington is ready to give Islamabad as much time as it wants to "reassess and reevaluate" bilateral ties, months after the Pakistan Government strongly objected to a miscalculated NATO strike on its army personnel at a border checkpost.


""Well first, let me just say obviously that Indian government can speak for itself and the questions of Pakistan what I would say is for me is that of course, we follow issues of Pakistan carefully, relationship of Pakistan with United States is very important. In Pakistan, the government of Pakistan has asked for some time to re-assess and re-evaluate their relationship with United States. I respect that," Grossman told media here after a meeting Indian Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai.


"What I would say is, that of course we follow issues in Pakistan carefully. The relationship between Pakistan and the US is very important. The Government of Pakistan and the Parliament of Pakistan have asked for some time to reassess and reevaluate their relationship with the US," he said.


He added: "They have asked for time to give them space to have that revaluation. What I say is that when Pakistan is ready to re -engage in a dialogue with United States, we are glad to do so at any time, at any place."


Grossman also said the US would continue to reinforce revival of the trilateral dialogue involving it, Pakistan and Afghanistan.


"Well, obviously the issues of relationship with Afghanistan and Pakistan are hugely important, we would like to continue to be in close conversation with Pakistanis on that issue as well, obviously what happens between Afghanistan and Pakistan is extremely important. We encourage dialogue between Afghanistan and Pakistan, we would like again to get into the meeting of the core group, Afghanistan, Pakistan and United States because I think a conversation about all these things is really necessary."


He also said that it was for Pakistan to address its internal affairs, and he could not comment on internal developments in that country. (ANI)
