WASHINGTON - Pakistan Ambassador to United States Ali Jehangir Siddiqui has said importing more U.S. natural gas is key to diversifying his nation’s energy supply while expanding trade relations.

In an interview, the envoy has said buying more liquefied natural gas from the U.S. will allow Pakistan to bolster its exports while maintaining the “fairness” and “parity” that his country and President Donald Trump’s administration seek.

Trade between the U.S. and Pakistan has stalled at about $5.5 billion in goods a year over the past decade. The top U.S. exports to Pakistan are machinery and aircraft, while it imports mainly textiles and leather products.
