WASHINGTON  — According to results of a Pew Research Center poll released Thursday, most Pakistanis have an overwhelmingly negative view of the United States.

The survey also found that Pakistanis have grown less fearful of extremists seizing control of their country, perhaps reflecting gains that government troops have made against militants since early 2009.

Most Pakistanis want improved relations with the United States, according to the poll. But most view the US with suspicion, support for American involvement in the fight against extremists has declined, and nearly two-thirds want US troops out of neighboring Afghanistan.

Nearly six in 10 Pakistanis polled described the US as an enemy and only one in 10 called it a partner.
