U.S. and Pakistan Agree to Reinforce Strategic Ties

Pakistan and the United States wrapped up two days of high-level talks on Thursday, with a raft of economic development initiatives, an agreement to hasten deliveries of military hardware and a promise to put their often mistrustful relationship on a new footing. In a communiqué issued after the talks, the countries said they would “redouble their efforts to deal effectively with terrorism” and would work together for “peace and stability in Afghanistan.”

Administration officials said Pakistan was likely to get swifter delivery of F-16 fighter jets, naval frigates and helicopter gunships, as well as new remotely piloted aircraft for surveillance missions. But the United States was silent about Pakistan’s most heavily advertised proposal: a civil nuclear agreement similar to the one the Bush administration signed with Pakistan’s archrival, India.

Given Pakistan’s history of selling nuclear technology to Iran, Libya and North Korea, such an agreement would realistically be 10 or 15 years away, a senior administration official said Thursday. Still, the administration was careful not to dismiss the idea out of hand. “This is a new day,” Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said in greeting Pakistan’s foreign minister, Shah Mahmood Qureshi. “For the past year, the Obama administration has shown in our words and our deeds a different approach and a different attitude toward Pakistan.” .........................................NY Times

Do the F-16's ship with a beard guard? Wouldn't want a beard getting stuck in the flight control sytem when it is flying at 100 mph(shareware mode).

Funny how some comments are censored and others not. why cant mod just approve messages before posting?

Tushar no one needs your two bit hate mongering you prissy two bit undernourished lil bhindian bhungi. You get the runs each time there is something about Pakistan on this blog. Take some immodium and plug that hole you spew this hate out of.
Bookz dont know about the beard guard on the F-16's but I am sure there is a dhoti guard and diapers on your Su-30's incase you soil yourself out of fear of engaging the PAF...
