Washington, Aug.12 (ANI): The United States is concerned about its negative image in Pakistan which was reflected in an opinion poll recently.

Addressing a regular briefing here, State Department Deputy Spokesman Robert Wood said the US is one of the largest contributors of humanitarian aid to Pakistan, and it wants to improve the economy and security of the troubled nation.

"Well, I saw that poll, and it's obviously very concerning. We clearly have a lot of work to do," The Daily Times quoted Wood, as saying.

"The Obama administration has done a lot to address a lot of concerns in not only the Muslim world but in other parts of the world about our sincerity in dialogue and reaching out and trying to make the world a better place," he added.

When enquired about the concerns of Pakistani civilians over US' growing ties with India, Wood said Washington would continue to work with both countries to face off common challenges.

Wood refrained to comment when asked whether the ongoing drone attacks would undermine Washington's policies for Pakistan's development.

"As standard practice, I don't comment on that particular, we don't comment on that particular issue," he said. (ANI)
