US President Donald Trump has said that he has started to develop a much better relationship with Pakistan, a day after Pakistani forces rescued an American-Canadian family from the Haqqani terror network.

American citizen Caitlan Coleman and her Canadian husband Joshua Boyle along with their three children were rescued from the Haqqanis on Thursday after an operation by Pakistani forces based on intelligence from the US authorities.  

The couple were kidnapped in 2012 in Afghanistan while on a backpacking trip. Their three children were born while the pair was in captivity. Trump had slammed Pakistan for its continued support to terrorists groups and warned Islamabad of consequences if it continues to do so while announcing his Afghan and South Asia policy in August.

The president thanked Pakistani leaders for cooperating with the US on many fronts: “Starting to develop a much better relationship with Pakistan and its leaders, I want to thank them for their cooperation on many fronts,” Trump said in a tweet.
