Washington, Mar 25: Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Thursday, Mar 25, said that he was satisfied after the talk with US.

"Today, I am a happy man and a satisfied man," Qureshi told a press conference with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Qureshi said, "Today, we have a partnership. And hopefully, this partnership will turn the tide in our favour -- hopefully, in our mutual favour."

"I am satisfied because you finally agreed to many of the things that we've been sharing over our discussions in the last two years," he said.

Quershi further said the two countries have agreed to fast-track the requests that have been pending for months and years on the transfer of military equipment to Pakistan.

"The Obama Administration has agreed to give the Reconstruction Opportunity Zone legislation a priority, which would result in duty free export of goods manufactured in designated areas to the US," he said.

The Pakistani minister also said US and Pakistan have agreed on speedy disbursement of the Coalition Support Fund.

However, Hillary termed the Pakistan's request for a civilian nuclear deal as "complicated issue" and ruled out any mediatory role for the US in resolving Indo-Pak issues.
