Pak-US relations: a work in progress


Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is back from his US visit, thankfully unscathed, but to cope with the natural disaster of Monday’s earthquake. He didn’t waste time in reaching out to the earthquake-affected people immediately after his arrival and had to promptly seek endorsement of the outcome of his parleys in Washington at a ‘high-powered’ meeting. Such is the plight of a prime minister living at the mercy of opposite pulls and uncertain times.
