WASHINGTON - The United States is not prepared to continue the same levels of military aid to Pakistan unless it sees some changes in the relationship, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Thursday.

"When it comes to our military aid, we are not prepared to continue providing that at the pace we were providing it unless and until we see some steps taken," Clinton told a Senate committee. She didn't specify the steps, but stressed it was time for the United States and Pakistan to ensure their interests and actions are aligned.

Clinton also said Washington did not believe the top levels of the Pakistani government knew that al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden had been hiding in a Pakistani city before he was killed by US forces there last month. The United States has been giving Pakistan about $3 billion in aid annually in recent years, much of it for the military.
