US, Pakistan ‘poised to enhance engagement to remove differences’: Report
Islamabad: Pakistan and the United States are likely to enhance their engagement to the leadership level in a bid to remove differences that have affected ties between the two nations since early 2012, a report has said.
Official sources have revealed that both the US and Pakistan are planning Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar’s visit to Washington sometime next month for a detailed discussion on various proposals for improving ties.
The Dawn quoted sources, as saying that both sides hope Khar’s visit to Washington will lead to a meeting between Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari and his US counterpart Barack Obama in New York in late September.
According to the paper, Zardari is expected to arrive in New York on September 24 on a three-day visit to attend the UN General Assembly.
Zardari is likely to come with a small delegation, including senior officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs who specialise in US-Pakistan relations, sources have claimed.
According to sources, ‘even if a meeting between the two presidents does not materialise, there will be leadership-level engagements between the two countries during the UN General Assembly.’
