ISLAMABAD: Pakistan's Foreign Ministry says that Pakistani-US teams will carry out joint operations and share intelligence in the campaign against militants.

The announcement suggests the United States and Pakistan are having some success in trying to repair ties following the unilateral American raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

A statement late Thursday from ministry spokeswoman Tehmina Janjua said the teams will share intelligence but that it doesn't necessarily mean US troops would be allowed on Pakistani soil.

The Associated Press reported the plans for a joint intelligence team on Wednesday. The team is expected to draw in part on any intelligence emerging from materials gathered from bin Laden's hideout in the Pakistani city of Abbottabad.
