U.S. says Pakistan upbeat on eventual cooperation

LONDON (Reuters) - Pakistan's foreign minister on Thursday welcomed U.S. proposals to resume cooperation on counterterrorism and Afghanistan after a Pakistani parliamentary review of U.S.-Pakistan relations, a senior U.S. official told reporters.

"In terms of the vision the secretary laid out of kind of getting back into business on questions like counterterrorism, the region, Afghanistan, I think the foreign minister was very welcoming of that," the U.S. official said after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton held a one-hour, 15-minute meeting with Pakistan's Hina Rabbani Khar in London.
