The move came after the Pakistani government asked the US for restraint as it is set to begin peace dialogue process with the Taliban.

“That’s what they asked for, and we didn’t tell them no,” the Post quoted a US official as saying.

The US-based daily newspaper said that the Obama administration indicated that it will continue carrying out strikes on senior al Qaeda officials if they become available or to thwart any immediate threat to US citizens.
