Exclusive: Pakistan-U.S. ties still on hold over NATO attack

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Ties between the United States and Pakistan are still on hold over a NATO cross-border air attack and Washington should not push Islamabad to go after militant groups including the Haqqani network or bring them to any Afghan peace process, Pakistan's foreign minister told Reuters on Thursday.

"Now that the re-evaluation process is underway as we speak, so till the time that that re-evaluation process in not complete, we cannot start the re-engagement," Hina Rabbani Khar said in an interview.
