Pakistan and the United States have expressed the desire to promote their bilateral relations.

The understanding to this effect reached during a meeting between Advisor to Prime Minister on National Security Moeed Yusuf and US Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman in Islamabad.

Both the sides discussed economic cooperation and the regional security situation.

The US side was appreciative of Pakistan's efforts for evacuation of foreigners from Afghanistan and the help it has extended to the Afghan refugees.

Moeed Yusuf said the world must maintain contacts with the interim government in Afghanistan.

He said Indian blatant human rights violations in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir also pose a threat to regional peace.
