Less than two months after pillorying Pakistan for allegedly sheltering terrorists, US President Donald Trump on Saturday came forward expressing gratitude for cooperating with American on many fronts.

Starting to develop a much better relationship with Pakistan and its leaders.

Mike Pence said: "The president is achieving real results on the global stage, as well".

He took to Twitter days after Pakistani security forces recovered a Canadian-American couple and their three children from Taliban's captivity.

"Today, we join the Boyle family in rejoicing over the long-awaited return to Canada of their loved ones", said Global Affairs Canada, a department in the Canadian government that manages Canada's diplomatic and consular relations.

The couple was kidnapped in 2012 in Afghanistan while on a backpacking trip.


US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis is scheduled to visit Pakistan soon, followed by a visit of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

"This tweet does not mean that everything is hunky dory with American ties with Pakistan... but it shows that there is a lot of give-and-take in their relationship".

President Trump said this while addressing the Values Voter Summit in Washington on Friday.

"That was a surprise to us", the official said. He praised the Pakistani government and armed forces for the cooperation to rescue the family in an operation. "Pakistanis have acted true to their form to give the impression about their seriousness", he said. "We hope to see this type of cooperation and teamwork in helping secure the release of remaining hostages and in our future joint counterterrorism operations", said statement from White House. "The President is achieving real results on the worldwide stage, as well", he said.

"We have been paying Pakistan billions and billions of dollars at the same time [when] they are housing the very terrorists that we are fighting", he said, warning that the vital aid the United States offers to the country could be cut.

The Haqqani network has carried out a number of kidnappings and attacks against USA interests in Afghanistan.
