WASHINGTON: US Congressman Adam Kinzinger has asked for reviewing the Pakistan and US relations in view of the US Afghanistan Policy.

US Congressman Adam Kinzinger has said Washington should go for any effective measures to make Islamabad comply with America’s Afghanistan strategy, even if that entails crossing the border.

"If that means more aid to do stuff, if that's withdrawing aid to do stuff, I think that's fine. But I think ultimately we need to make it clear that we are going to cross the border if necessary because they are not doing enough," Kinzinger said while speaking at an event held at the Wilson Center.

He was answering a question posed by Jane Harman, Director, President and CEO of the Wilson Center, around Pakistan's role in Afghanistan.

The Republican lawmaker, who represents the state of Illinois, is of the view that the United States should toughen up its foreign policy when it comes to its ties with Pakistan.
