Pakistan-US relations on downward slide: Sartaj Aziz


ISLAMABAD: Relations between Pakistan and the United States have been on a downward spiral over the past three months, as reflected by the US Congress’s recent blocking of funds for the F-16 fighter jet deal, Adviser to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz said on Thursday.
Delivering a policy statement in the upper house of parliament on Thursday after an adjournment motion was moved by Senator Mohsin Leghari and other senators on purchasing eight Lockheed Martin F-16 jets from US, Aziz said that the issue is still under discussion with American authorities and that Islamabad was making strides on multiple fronts to keep the US Administration and members of Congress engaged in a dialogue
