As the US prepares to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan by 2014, the Obama administration has said that Pakistan’s own security and stability is tied to a successful outcome in its neighbourhood.

The US is continuing informal discussions with the Afghans on a bilateral security agreement (BSA) though formal negotiations have been suspended, she added.
