“US will extend every possible assistance to Pakistan to fight against terrorism”, Mark Toner said.
Relations between the US and Pakistan deteriorated after an American drone strike on May 21 that killed Afghan Taliban chief Mullah Akhtar Mansour in Balochstan. Pakistan termed the drone strike as an attack on it sovereignty and said that it had negatively affected Pak-US trust.
