US-Pakistan discuss Regional Stability on UN Sidelines

Pakistan and the US have decided to remain engaged with a productive way to achieve mutual aspirations of peace, stability and prosperity in the region.

The accord was reached during a meeting between Shahid Khaqan Abbasi (Pakistan’s Prime Minister) and US Vice President Mike Pence on the sidelines of UN General Assembly. Both the parties discussed issues relating to bilateral relationships as well as the peace and stability in Afghanistan. PM Abbasi also expressed Pakistan’s concerns regarding the new US policy for South Asia.

Responding to questions from the media, Pakistans Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua said that the meeting was an ‘ice-breaker’. She said it was agreed that the United States would send a delegation to Pakistan in October, a move that many experts regarded as a positive step.

It was the first high-level meeting between US and Pakistan after the declaration of the new US strategy by President Donald Trump on Afghanistan and South Asia, which blamed Pakistan for supporting and harbouring terrorists.

During the opening statements, the US vice-president greeted PM Abbasi on behalf of President Donald Trump and recalled the new strategy of US administration. Pence said that the United States valued its relationship with Pakistan, which has been a long-term ally in the region.

Responding to another question, the Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua said that the prime minister expressed concern over providing greater role and support to India. She said the PM discussed the points raised by the National Security Committee in which Pakistan vehemently rejected all accusations levelled by President Trump.

Welcoming the Pakistani PM, Vice President Pence said, “the US looks forward to exploring possibilities so that both nations can work closely with each other, especially in the area of security.” Prime Minister Abbasi acknowledged and thanked the US Vice President for his invitation and said he too looked forward to discussing issues of mutual interest, especially the war against terrorism.
