Pakistan aims to strengthen 'momentum gained in bilateral ties' with US - UTV Pakistan

Pakistan has underscored the significance of bolstering its relationship with the United States in 2024, capitalizing on the strides made in the previous year. This commitment was reaffirmed during a meeting between the Caretaker Foreign Minister, Jalil Abbas Jilani, and the US Ambassador to Pakistan, Donald Blome.

The discussions centered on various facets of bilateral relations, encompassing the recent visit of Chief of Army Staff General Syed Asim Munir to the United States. The interim foreign minister emphasized the imperative of perpetuating the recent exchanges and the positive momentum in the relationship.

During their encounter, Blome and Jilani delved into expanded diplomatic engagement, the seamless processing of eligible Afghan citizens for resettlement in the US, and other shared interests. General Munir’s visit to the US last month aimed to explore potential areas of cooperation in both bilateral and regional contexts.

He engaged with key political and military figures, including US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, to deliberate on regional security developments and opportunities for defense collaboration. The US Department of State spokesperson acknowledged Pakistan as a pivotal partner and underscored their engagement with various representatives within the Pakistani government.
