British Prime Minister, David Cameron, has met with Pakistani President, Asif Ali Zardari, in London to discuss boosting trade and fighting extremism.
Both leaders brushed aside a diplomatic spat last week by British criticism of Pakistani efforts to counter terrorism.
Cameron and Zardari discussed a broad range of issues, ranging from Pakistan's devastating floods to strategic partnership.
The British Prime Minister says his country is ready to work with Pakistan to ensure regional security and prosperity.
David Cameron, British Prime Minister, said, "Whether it is keeping troops safe in Afghanistan or keeping people safe on the streets of Britain, that is a real priority for my government, and somewhere where, with Pakistan, we are going to work together in this enhanced strategic partnership."
Zardari says Pakistan's alliance with Britain is unbreakable.
Asif Ali Zardari, Pakistani President, said, "We have a hundreds of years old relationship, we've been allies in the cold war era. We are the allies for the last 62 years, before that we were friends, and it's a friendship which will never break, no matter what happens. And storms will come and storms will go, and Pakistan and Britain will stand together and face all the difficulties with dignity."
Pakistan is one of Britain's most important allies in fighting extremism.
Nearly a million people of Pakistani origin live in Britain, and Pakistani intelligence has been crucial in several extremism-related investigations.
