KARACHI: The talks between Pakistan and US have been planned when US foreign affairs delegation will visit Pakistan. The agenda will comprise new Trump policy, Pak-US relations and Afghan reconciliation process.

Sources said Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s meetings with President Trump and Mike Pence in New York were in a pleasant environment and the authorities agreed to a three-phase dialogue.

Depending upon the outcome of the negotiations in the first phase, Pakistan’s delegation may visit US. It is also being said that if negotiations in the first two phases succeed, Premier Abbasi could have a crucial meeting with President Trump during the third phase.

Pakistan has already told US that it will not accept any ‘do-more’ demands.

According to sources, the recent meetings have reduced the tension between the two countries and the US administration is expected to amend its Afghanistan policy after the dialogue.
