    WASHINGTON: US Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s Chairman Senator John Kerry visited Pakistan along with the list of demands and could use threats and offers to make demands meet, a report published in US newspaper said.

    According to the US newspaper, Senator Kerry would try to use the threat of Congressional cuts to the $3 billion in annual American aid to Pakistan as leverage.

    Before leaving for Pakistan, He met with Foreign Minister Hillary Clinton, the national security adviser, Thomas E. Donilon, and other top American security officials.

    A senior US administration official said that any evidence of Pakistan's complicity in sheltering Osama Bin Laden - culled from the hundreds of computer flash drives and documents recovered in the raid - could also be used, however So far, no such evidence has been found.

    Senator Kerry in Senate said "In the Congress, this is a make-or-break moment" for aid to Pakistan.”

    He said in an interview that he would tell Pakistan that there needed to be "a real demonstration of commitment" to fighting terrorist groups in the next few months.

    Kerry will also reassure Pakistani officials that they will be a central part of any political accord with the Taliban in Afghanistan, to ease their fears that India will take over large areas of Afghanistan as the United States pulls out.

    He will also raise an issue of Pakistan's escalating production of nuclear fuel.

    Members of Congress, in closed sessions, have complained that if Pakistan continued to escalate production of nuclear fuel then it would jeopardize the fundings.

    Apropos the emboldened part:

    Wasn't US giving aid to Pakistan to find Osama and other Al-Qaeda leaders? After OBL was found without Pakistani participation, isn't it obvious to many (not all) that US is going to pull the plug anyway, since OBL is history now?
