Yousuf Raza Gilani Islamabad, May 29 (IANS) Relations between Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and US spy agency CIA - that were strained after the secret mission in Abbottabad that killed Osama bin Laden - have now improved, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said Sunday.

Talking to journalists, Gilani said Pakistan has made it clear to US that Abbottabad-like operation was not acceptable to it, The Nation reported.
