While talking about Pak-US relations he said US has always cooperated with Pakistan, and wants strong ties between the two countries, he also observed that Pakistan should work on governance and eliminate misappropriation of funds given for socioeconomic development. “The government of Pakistan has been focusing on the development sector, but now there is a need to work on good governance,” he said, adding, “Pakistan should utilize the funds given by the US in a fair manner.” While referring to fund misappropriation in Pakistan he said, “Pakistan was given funds for education in Sindh and Balochistan; however, the money was not always used honestly, the former ambassador lamented”.
