Islamabad, Mar.31 (ANI): Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that the US has acknowledged Islamabad's actions in the 'war on terror', and it was now Washington's turn to do 'something extraordinary'.

Interacting with media persons on the recent strategic talks between Pakistan and the US, Qureshi said the relationship between both countries has improved greatly over the past few years, which is evident from the enhanced level of interaction.

"You have to see the basic difference between the past and the present meetings. The level of interaction has been upgraded. You can see the level of participation. There are specifics and by the end of April, we will be delivered a big sum and by the end of current fiscal year," The News quoted Qureshi, as saying.

He said the White House has been hesitant in offering Islamabad the equipments needed to fight against extremists, but the situation has changed as it has now not only agreed to fulfil Pakistan's requirements but also to fast track the process.

"Earlier, the US administration was not serious in giving us assistance. But, during the recent strategic talks it was agreed that Pakistan also needs economic assistance. We presented them a dossier of demands to tell them what we need," Qureshi said. (ANI)
