WASHINGTON - Two senior Republican senators called on Monday for a thorough review of US relations with Pakistan, declaring that all security and economic aid to Islamabad must be reconsidered.

John McCain and Lindsey Graham - influential members of the Senate Armed Services committee - said Washington had to be realistic about the deteriorating relationship.

They said actions of Pakistan's military, such as its support for militant groups, were harming US forces and threatening American security.

"The time has come for the United States to fully review its relations with Pakistan," McCain and Graham said in a statement. "In particular, all options regarding US security and economic assistance to Pakistan must be on the table, including substantial reductions and stricter standards for performance."

McCain was the Republican party's candidate in the 2008 presidential election won by Democrat Barack Obama.
