Unites States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton [Images] has spoken to President Asif Ali Zardari [Images] to share with him the vision of President Barack Obama's [Images] administration and its policies towards the region and Pakistan.

During a brief telephone conversation with Zardari on Thursday night, Clinton discussed the situation in the region and Pakistan-US relations.

Clinton and Zardari agreed that the ties between the two countries, which have continued to expand in all facets over the years, would be further strengthened by the new democratic government in Pakistan and the US, the state-run APP news agency reported.

Zardari congratulated Clinton on assuming the post. He also welcomed Obama's desire to seek 'a new way forward' with the Muslim world. This new path, based on mutual respect and interest, was inspiring, he added.

He said the US, along with other international players, has an important responsibility to work on new initiatives for peace, progress and prosperity in the times ahead.
