We are convinced that we are able to work with this government on fighting terror, working with them to help build a different kind of and a better kind of Pakistan , with greater freedoms and greater prosperity. So were going to continue working with them. How they arrange themselves politically, the platform of the government, those are going to be decisions for the Pakistani government to make, added the spokesman. (ANI)
