The United States will not maintain the same level of military aid to Pakistan unless it sees changes in the relationship, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Thursday.

When it comes to our military aid, we are not prepared to continue providing that at the pace we were providing it unless and until we see some steps taken, Clinton told a Senate committee.

She did not outline the necessary steps, but emphasized the time has come for the United States and Pakistan ensure they are on the right page and actions are aligned.

Clinton also said Washington did not believe the top levels of the Pakistani government knew that al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden had been taking refuge in a Pakistani city before he was killed by U.S. Special Forces there last month, Reuters reported.

The United States has been provided Pakistan with roughly $3 billion in aid annually, much of it for military purposes.
