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

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.
