Islamabad, Feb. 25 (ANI): Pakistan's Ambassador to the US, Sherry Rehman has said the Pak-US relationship is back to a new sober but stable level, upward trajectory and the level of confidence is returning.

Rehman, who was speaking at Harvard University on 'Pakistan and the United States: the road to 2014 and beyond', said Pakistan hopes to be a valuable friend and partner of the US even after the drawdown of forces in 2014, reports the Daily Times.

She said Pakistan wants to help the US manage a smooth and responsible transition in Afghanistan and would like the US to lay down the foundations for Afghanistan's future political and economic stability. This is in Pakistan's self interest because peace in Pakistan is difficult without peace in Afghanistan, she said.

She said if US plays its part and work through the endgame of a long war, it will only bring stability and prosperity to the region.

Rehman pointed out that both US and Pakistan were in two wars together next door. They won the first war, but lost the peace.

She further said that Pakistan will support all roadmaps for a negotiated settlement of the Afghan war. It will not support any groups, or play any favourites, she added. (ANI)
