Washington, Mar 12 (ANI): Urging the incoming government in Pakistan to keep up the fight against terrorism, the Bush Administration has said that it is looking forward to work with the new coalition government in that country.
We look forward to working with the government once it is formed. There are a number of issues of common interest here. And, certainly, one of the areas that we will focus on is the continuing fight against terrorism, our counter terrorism efforts, State Department Spokesman Sean McCormack said.
This is an issue of interest to the government of Pakistan and certainly to the people of that country, The News quoted McCormack, as saying.
McCormack ruled out any US involvement in the formation of the new government in Pakistan saying that it is up to the political leaders of that country to decide who should or should not be included in the government.
Expressed the hope that Pakistan would continue its support to the US in its fight against extremists, he said that Pakistna has come a long way in fighting terrorism. (ANI)
