Addressing the media days after meeting Pakistan's foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Bolton said he held constructive talks and both the officials discussed the security assistance that was suspended earlier this year.

'Qureshi and I also discussed effective strategies against terrorist’s groups and Dr Shakil Afridi’s release' he added.
