WASHINGTON (Agencies) Amid reports that the US may cooperate with Pakistan in civilian nuclear use, a top American diplomat on Tuesday said that the Obama Administration would soon unwrap a range of actions for Islamabad in the field of energy, security and water. Special US Representative for Pakistan and Afghanistan Richard Holbrooke, who had a preview meeting with Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi ahead of Wednesdays US-Pak strategic dialogue, said the Congress would be involved in the process. The meeting was held at the Foggy Bottom headquarters of the state department; which among others was attended by Pakistani Ambassador to the US Husain Haqqani. Holbrooke said the US would be announcing a range of actions, some big some small that move the process forward on issues from energy to water to education, to security. We consider this to be a very important trip. I do want to be clear that no single trip ends an issue. This is a process, he said. The comments by Holbrooke left it unclear whether US intends to expand its growing cooperation with Pakistan in civil and military fields to civilian nuclear use. Earlier, a US-based Pakistani newspaper had quoted US Ambassador in Islamabad Anne W Patterson as saying that Washington is beginning to have a discussion with the Pakistan government on its desire to tap nuclear energy. Patterson was also quoted as saying that there would be working level talks on the issue in Washington this month. Pakistan has been seeking a civil nuclear pact similar to that between India and the US, arguing that Washington must not discriminate against it. In his brief remarks, FM Qureshi reiterated that it is time that the US met the aspirations of Pakistan. I agree with Ambassador Holbrooke that this is a process but this process has to be meaningful and it has to be mutually beneficial. It cannot be one-sided, Qureshi told Pakistani media. The people of Pakistan want the US to walk the talk, said Qureshi, who would lead the Pakistani delegation for the first US-Pak strategic dialogue on Wednesday (today). The US delegation would be led by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Meanwhile, President Barack Obama on Monday greeted Pakistani people on the occasion of Pakistan Day and vowed US steadfast partnership in building a peaceful and prosperous future. On behalf of the American people, I send my best wishes to the people of Pakistan and all those of Pakistani descent here in America and around the world observing Pakistan National Day, Obama said in a message released by the White House. Following is the statement issued by the White House: On behalf of the American people, I send my best wishes to the people of Pakistan and all those of Pakistani descent here in America and around the world observing Pakistan National Day. Seventy years ago, Muhammad Ali Jinnah and those of the independence generation declared their dreams of self-determination and democracy. Today, the people of Pakistan are carrying on the great work of Quaid-e Azam. In these efforts, the American people are proud to join in the education, health and economic partnerships that can improve the daily lives of Pakistanis and their families. Here in the United States, our country is enriched by the many Pakistani Americans who excel as doctors, small business owners, students, members of our armed forces and in many other fields. On this National Day, we give thanks for the contributions of these fellow Americans, and the United States pledges to remain a partner of all Pakistanis who seek to build a future of peace and prosperity, added the US President, who has offered Islamabad an extended strategic partnership. Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Qureshi on Tuesday met with Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry and top Republican on the panel Ricahrd Lugar and discussed advancing Pakistan-US relations in wide-ranging areas. Chief of the Army Staff Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir, Pakistans ambassador to the United States Husain Haqqani also attended the meeting. The Foreign Minister apprised the Senate leaders of Pakistans commitment and efforts to deal with challenges of violent extremism and militancy in the country and the region. A senior aide to Senator John Kerry said the US relationship with Pakistan is vital and Tuesdays meeting is part of the continuing discussions and engagement with the Pakistani leaders. Foreign Minister Qureshi will co-chair the strategic dialogue wit( Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday, which will explore cooperation in a host of areas including energy, water, economic development, security issues and agriculture. Earlier, ahead of its first strategic dialogue with Pakistan, the United States has said it was broadening and deepening its relationship with both Islamabad and New Delhi, and would keep encouraging them too to increase their dialogue. I think we are satisfied with the level of engagement that we have across a wide-range of issues with the Indian government, State Department spokesman Philip J Crowley told reporters Tuesday when asked to comment about the upcoming dialogue with Pakistan. Well have ... conversation with Pakistan this week on a wide range of issues from agriculture, water, and energy, economic development and finance, defence and security, social issues, and public diplomacy, Crowley said. We are broadening and deepening our relationship with both India and Pakistan, and we certainly are looking for ways in which we can continue to encourage the two countries to increase their dialogue as well. Asked if US was supportive of a gas pipeline deal signed last week by Pakistan and Iran, Crowley said it was a decision for Pakistan to make. But our concerns about the role that Iran plays in the region and beyond is well-known. We continue a wide range of discussions not only in the region but around the world in terms of the nature of future economic transactions between Pakistan and Iran, and well continue that conversation, he said. And It could, sure come up during the strategic dialogue on Wednesday. The official said the US supported the Afghan governments interest in reaching out to members of insurgent groups provided they renounce violence, and have no ties to Al-Qaeda. These are primarily issues between Afghanistan and insurgent groups as part of the reintegration and reconciliation process, he said when asked about Sundays peace talks between Afghanistan President and Hizb-e-Islami leaders, who have links with Al-Qaeda. We do support the Afghan Governments interest in reaching out to members of these insurgent groups. Our concern, shared by Afghanistan, is that they cease support for insurgency, live in accordance with the Afghan constitution, renounce violence, and have no ties to Al-Qaeda or terrorist organisations. Any group that is willing to accede to those conditions can play a role in Afghanistans future.
