Relations are not good at the moment, as popular sentiment is very much against us:
‘The U.S. strategy in the war in Afghanistan hinges on going after militants taking refuge in Pakistan. The breakdown in intelligence cooperation has cast a pall over U.S.-Pakistani relations, with some officials in both countries saying intelligence ties are at their lowest point since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks spurred the alliance.’
Of course, we need this cooperation to succeed, and The Pakistani state is likely quite involved with terrorism.
