Washington: US President Donald Trump said on Thursday that he looks forward to establish good relations with the new leadership in Pakistan. He underlined that country wants a “great relationship” with the long-time ally.
After cabinet meeting, Donald Trump while talking to the news reporters said that he wants to establish positive relations with the new leadership of Pakistan.
He also told about the peace talks that have recently been initiated by his government with the Talibans. US president also sought other countries especially Russia, India, China and Pakistan to play their part in making peace talks.
Towards the start of the previous year Donald Trump lashed Pakistani government and threatening that US AID will be cut-off to the country
“The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!” reads the Tweet.
However almost a month back, Trump wrote letter to Imran Khan seeking for his assistance in bringing Taliban leaders on a negotiation table with the US officials.
Trump accused Pakistan of hiding Osama Bin Ladin and said that America paid billions of dollars to Pakistan due to war on terror.
