In a statement issued last on Tuesday night, Blinken expressed that Pakistan had been an important partner on wide-ranging mutual interests for nearly 75 years and US valued their relationship.
"The United States views a strong, prosperous and democratic Pakistan as essential for the interests of both countries," he added.
Responding to the statement, the Prime Minister's Office reaffirmed the need for cooperation with United States. "The new government wishes to constructively and positively engage with the US to promote shared goals of peace, security and development in the region," it tweeted.
Imran said that Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif had said that if the conspiracy will be proved, he would stand by his side, adding that Shahbaz does not need to stand by his side, but should apologise to him.
Prime Minister Modi said that India desires peace and stability in a region free of terror so that both countries can focus on its development challenges.
