Mark Grossman leaves for another visit to Pakistan
Washington: In an apparent effort to normalise growing tension between the two countries over a slew of incidents, US special envoy Mark Grossman left for yet another visit to Pakistan to hold talks with country`s senior government officials.
Grossman, who left on Thursday, is US Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan. His trip is seen as a fresh attempt to address several contentious issues including temporary halt in military aid and non-issuance of visa.
"In Pakistan, Ambassador Grossman will meet with senior government officials and will represent the United States at the fourth meeting of the US-Afghanistan-Pakistan Core Group to support the process of Afghan-led reconciliation," State Department spokesman, Mark Toner, told reporters at his daily news conference.
During his tour, he will also visit Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, and the Kyrgyz Republic as part of the ongoing consultations with Afghanistan’s neighbours and international partners, Toner said.
