Imran Khan calls for more  ties with US

Pakistani prime minister-in-waiting Imran Khan called for more "trustworthy" ties with the United States which have frayed amid US accusations that Pakistan is aiding Islamist insurgents waging war in Afghanistan, something Islamabad denies.

Khan, who is due to be sworn-in as premier next week after his July 25 election victory, met acting US Ambassador to Pakistan John F. Hoover on Wednesday and said the ups and downs in relations had led to a "trust deficit". Washington has suspended aid and military assistance to Pakistan.
