The Pakistani Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani said on Sunday that the strained relations between Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) of Pakistan and CIA of the United States have eased and improved.

While talking to media, the Prime Minister said that the intelligence sharing and cooperation with the United States will continue.

Pakistan has made it clear to the United States that the Abbottabad-like operation is not acceptable to it, said Gilani.

Talking about the independent commission to investigate the Abbottabad incident, the Prime Minister said that consultations with different political parties are underway and the commission will be constituted after completion of the process.

On May 2, the U.S. forces unilaterally launched a raid on the compound of the al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden in Pakistan's northwestern city of Abbottabad without notifying the Pakistani side.

The cooperation between ISI and CIA had virtually come to a halt because of the incident and the relationship between the two intelligence agencies did not get improved until after the U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton paid a surprise visit to Pakistan on Friday.
