The Pakistani government needs to take action against the links between its agencies and extremist organisations such as Haqqani network, the US said.
"I think we’ve been very clear about our views on this. One, that the Haqqani network was responsible for the attacks on US embassy in Kabul and then ISAF, as well as some others, and that the Pakistani government needs to take action to deal with the links that exist there," White House press secretary Jay Carney said.
"We work very closely with the Pakistanis and have had success due to that cooperation in fighting al Qaeda. As I’ve said in the past, in many ways, no country has suffered more at the hands of terrorists than Pakistan. So there is a common enemy here," he said in response to a question.
Carney also acknowledged that the Obama Administration is reviewing its aid programmes to Pakistan.
"We obviously are always reviewing our aid programs. I believe the State Department and others have talked about that.
"I don’t have anything new to add on that except that we obviously take it seriously and discuss these matters with our Pakistani counterparts," he added
