Washington, Islamabad enjoying ‘very good’ relations: Trump
WASHINGTON: United States President Donald Trump has said the US was enjoying ‘very good’ relations with Pakistan, ARY News reported on Thursday.
Mr Trump made the remarks as he prepared to depart the White House for a factory visit in Ohio, where he would also meet with his supporters.
Lauding the Pakistan’s role for peace and stability in the region and bringing Taliban on the table of talks, President Trump said, his administration would meet with the Pakistani officials soon.
The US-Pakistan relationship has witnessed a fair share of ups and downs recently, with President Trump announcing to make a cut worth $300 million in military aid to Pakistan last year.
The US President had also criticised Pakistan in a Twitter post back in November, saying Islamabad was not doing enough to stop terrorism.
Later, Prime Minister Imran Khan responded the US President and termed the US allegation as baseless.
Later in an interview with the Washington Post, the premier turned down the impression of a Twitter war with the US President, relaying that he responded to Trump to set the record straight.
“The exchange was about being blamed for deeply flawed US policies — the military approach to Afghanistan,” he added.
