Pakistan Foreign Office responds over media reports of US President Donald Trump’s visit to Pakistan

ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Foreign Office responds over media reports of US President Donald Trump’s visit to Pakistan.

Foreign Office Spokesperson Ayesha Farooqi said on Monday that United States President Donald Trump was unlikely to pay a visit to Pakistan.

She termed speculations of Trump’s visit to Pakistan as “false”.

The FO spokesperson welcomed the announcement of the U.S.-Taliban peace deal, and expressed hope that the agreement would bring peace and stability in Afghanistan.

Tens of thousands of people packed into a stadium in western India to welcome U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday as he began his first official visit to the country at a time when relations that have been buffeted by a trade dispute.

Trump landed in the western city of Ahmedabad, the political home of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, to a raucous welcome, at the start of a two-day trip that will also take him to the Taj Mahal in Agra and Delhi for official meetings.

U.S. concerns that led last year to the suspension of India’s tariff-free access for some $5.6 billion in exports under the 1970s-era Generalized System of Preferences still remain, U.S. officials say.
