Pakistan's Imran Khan calls for more 'trustworthy' ties with U.S.


ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistani prime minister-in-waiting Imran Khan called for more "trustworthy" ties with the United States which have frayed amid U.S. 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 U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan John F. Hoover on Wednesday and said the ups and downs in relations had led to a "trust deficit".
