Washington: The United States is now back in the business of trying to intensify its counter-terrorism cooperation with Pakistan, now that the ground lines of communications are open, a US official has said.
"In the context of having reopened the ground lines of communication, we are back in the business of trying to intensify our counter terrorism cooperation with Pakistan," the State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland told reporters at her daily news conference here.
"For example, some of the working groups that the Secretary (of State) set up a year ago in October/November when she was in Pakistan, the work that got suspended is coming back online. We're going to have a couple of those groups meeting, in fact, even this week," she said.
Nuland added that the United States will offer its support to Pakistan as there is more work to do to counter terrorism inside the country.
