Pakistan-US relationship: 'We do not trust each other'

Pakistan's Prime Minister Yousef Raza Gilani has said his country does not trust the United States, and the feeling is mutual.

He told the BBC it could be weeks before a blockade of Nato convoys carrying supplies to Afghanistan is lifted, following two US air strikes which killed 24 Pakistani soldiers on the Afghan border last month.

Mr Gilani said it was vital to improve the relationship.

"We are working together and still we don't trust each other... we should have more confidence in each other," he said.
