He stressed that we’re working together with Pakistan. Militant outfits pose a grave threat to Pakistan and both the countries are standing up against this menace shoulder-to-shoulder.

"We want to find ways that we can act jointly on our shared challenges. We continue to pursue those interests. We’re obviously – as we’ve said many times, Pakistan is under enormous threat from extremist groups. We want to find ways to work constructively with them to address these challenges”, he said.

He said while answering a Question,that our work in Pakistan was geared towards building the kind of institutions that will strengthen Pakistani democracy.
