ISLAMABAD: The US Ambassador in Pakistan Cameron Munter on Tuesday revealed that PTI chief Imran Khan and PML-N president Nawaz Sharif both assured him of a pro-US government after next elections, DawnNews reported.

The US ambassador, during an interview with BBC Urdu, said that talks did not end at Nato supply restoration, adding that there was still a lot to do for economic development and to eliminate terrorism.

He said that he has held meetings with chiefs of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf, adding both the leaders had assured him that they completely support the US.

Commenting on situation in Afghanistan, Munter said that Pakistan has to become part of solution and not problem.

The US envoy said that both countries will have to work together to eliminate insurgents' hideouts inside Pakistan so as to ensure assistance in Afghan war.

The ambassador said the Nato supply blockade had isolated Pakistan from 50 friendly countries and the resumption had opened the doors for further cooperation. Moreover, he said that the issue of expenses was not part of the negotiations for the resumption of the supply routes.
