Pakistan and the US have resolved to ensure that al-Qaeda is "dismantled, disrupted and defeated", though Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani wants a distinction to be made between the Taliban and al-Qaeda. The matter figured in a telephonic conversation late last night between Gilani and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, an official statement said. The two leaders held extensive discussions on Pakistan-US relations after Clinton called the Premier. "Both the leaders expressed determination that al-Qaeda had to be dismantled, disrupted and defeated, for which both countries should work together," the statement said. Gilani said it is "imperative to make a distinction between the Taliban and al-Qaeda, which would help to overcome the threat". Gilani and Clinton also expressed satisfaction over the establishment of a Joint Task Force between the intelligence agencies of the two countries to facilitate information-sharing and coordination.
