The US’s shift in its relationship with Pakistan could not have been more evident: Secretary Clinton reached out to students at Government College in Lahore in an hour-long townhall. It demonstrated American commitment to a long-term, mutually respectful partnership.
“I am well aware that there is a trust deficit,” Clinton told the students. “My message is that’s not the way it should be. We cannot let a minority of people in both countries determine our relationship.”
Secretary Clinton implored the students to keep fighting extremism in Pakistan, saying it went against all that Americans and Pakistanis alike held dear.
