Report: U.S., Pakistan Agree To Work Together Against 'High Value Targets'

Relations between the U.S. and Pakistan have been more strained than ever since a team of American commandos swept into Abbottabad, Pakistan, two weeks ago and killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.

The U.S. had not informed Pakistani authorities about the raid.

Now, The Associated Press reports from Islamabad that:

"According to a joint statement, the U.S. and Pakistan have agreed to work together in any future actions against 'high value targets' in Pakistan. The two countries made the announcement Monday following a visit by U.S. Sen. John Kerry [D-MA] to Islamabad. Kerry is the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee."
