Pakistan wants to rebuild ties with the United States, despite conflict with the US over deadly NATO airstrikes on its troops along the Afghan border.

In an interview with the media, Pakistan's Prime Minister, Yousuf Raza Gilani underlined his nation's stance, saying he did not regret skipping the Bonn meeting. But he stressed that Pakistan is committed to the reconciliation process in Afghanistan.

Yousuf Raza Gilani said, "Pakistan is committed, Pakistan has a resolve, Pakistan has ability, and Pakistan had been doing a lot for the reconciliation and Pakistan has suffered a lot because of foreign terrorism and extremism. Not only in the form of casualties of 30 thousand innocent people, but 5 thousand brave soldiers, law-enforcement agencies, and also in the form of economy. How can anybody doubt our intentions that after making so much sacrifices that we will not be committed to the reconciliation process in Afghanistan? We are committed and despite that we are not attending but we are committed, but we want to have our relationships with clear defined parameters in future."
