Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani said on Friday that the United States (US) cannot live with or without Pakistan and that it should "avoid sending wrong messages which could affect bilateral ties."
Speaking to the media after the inaugural ceremony of three reconstructed berths at Karachi Port Trust (KPT), Gilani said such messages would create political problems for the government to promote relations between the two countries.
Meanwhile Defence Minister Chaudhry Ahmed Mukhtar seconded Gilani's statement, saying that it was vital for both countries to maintain relations and that the US had still not provided with credible evidence against Haqqanis' presence in Pakistan.
