US, Pakistan will cooperate on high value targets
ISLAMABAD - May 16, 2011 (WPVI) -- According to a joint statement, the U.S. and Pakistan have agreed to work together in any future actions against "high value targets" in Pakistan.
The two countries made the announcement Monday following a visit by U.S. Sen. John Kerry to Islamabad. Kerry is the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Relations between the two countries have been badly strained following the U.S. Navy SEAL raid that killed Osama bin Laden on May 2.
U.S. officials have said they didn't tell Pakistan about the operation before it happened, because they were worried bin Laden might be tipped off.
