Clinton: US cannot abandon Pakistan relationship

WASHINGTON - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday the United States cannot abandon Pakistan but that the South Asian nation must help solve Afghanistan's difficulties or it will "continue to be part of the problem."
Her comments were the latest in a series by US officials exposing the difficulty of the relationship with Pakistan, particularly after Washington publicly accused its powerful Directorate of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) of supporting a militant attack on the US embassy in Kabul on Sept. 13.
The head of the ISI, Lieutenant General Ahmed Shuja Pasha, has denied the US accusation.
