The US has responded to accusations from Pakistan that a drone strike that killed Pakistani Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud had destroyed the country's peace process.

 

A state department official said talks with the Taliban were an internal matter for Pakistan.

 

The statement insisted Pakistan and the US had a "shared strategic interest in ending extremist violence".

 

Pakistan has summoned the US ambassador to protest over Friday's drone strike that killed Mehsud.
