ISLAMABAD: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Tuesday said Pakistan-United States relations were based on mutual respect and trust and would continue to strengthen in the days ahead.

He was speaking to a delegation of US lawmakers at Zardari House.

Minister for Information and Broadcasting Qamar Zaman Kaira, Minister for Water and Power Ch. Ahmad Mukhtar, Secretary General PPP Jehangir Badr and Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Malik Ammad Khan and former Prime Minister AJK Barrister Sultan Mahmood were present during the meeting.

Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira later told reporters that the two sides had an in-depth discussion and had a review of the Pak-US relations and stressed the need of having increased people to people interaction at all levels to help remove misunderstandings and make the relationship more robust and productive.

Both sides noted that increased parliamentary exchanges would go a long way in creating deeper understanding of each others positions and help build unanimity of views on critical matters of concern to both the countries.

Pakistan's role in the global war against terror was also discussed and its sacrifices to make the world a better place to live, were appreciated.
