PM to have wide-ranging talks with US leadership: FM

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi says Prime Minister Imran Khan will hold wide ranging talks with the US leadership during his visit to the United States on bilateral, regional and international issues of importance. 

Addressing a press conference in Washington ahead of Prime Minister's visit Shah Mahmood Qureshi said it seeks to reset Pakistan-US relations with a focus on expanding bilateral cooperation in place of Afghanistan-centered relations over the last several years.   

He said the Prime Minister will hold talks with President Trump at the White House on Monday and would highlight the points of convergence where cooperation could be mutually beneficial.

Later, the two sides will also have extended discussions at the White House.

He said we want to take forward an environment of trust and cooperation that has developed between the two countries from a low point in the ties.

The Foreign Minister said Pakistan relations with the United States have shown a gradual improvement under the Imran Khan government which has cooperated with the Trump Administration's goal of resolving the Afghan conflict through negotiations involving the Taliban.
