The fallout from Monday's raid has added a new layer of tensions to Pakistan-US relations, but Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, says Washington will continue engaging with Pakistan.

Clinton says the US needs Pakistan's cooperation in ferrying supplies to NATO forces in Afghanistan.

She also notes the two nations will strengthen cooperation between their parliaments, army, and judiciary departments.

Washington lawmakers are debating whether they should attach more strings to the billions of dollars in aid they give Pakistan. Congress has approved 20 billion over the past decade, making Pakistan one of the biggest US aid recipients.

About half was reimbursement for help in fighting extremists. Some lawmakers favor a cut off, now that bin Laden is dead. Others say Washington still needs Pakistan as a partner to fight terrorism.
