ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s Finance Minister Shaukat Tarin has reaffirmed the government’s desire for a broad-based and sustainable relationship with the US.
During a meeting with US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia Donald Lu, who called on him at the Pakistan Embassy, the finance minister underscored Pakistan’s interest in enhancing investment and trade linkages with the US and reiterated the government’s commitment to undertaking further economic reforms and improving the ease of doing business for foreign companies.
Tarin also reiterated Pakistan’s support for an inclusive political settlement in Afghanistan.
While the Taliban should honour their commitments, it was important that the international community help the Afghan people, as they faced a dire humanitarian crisis.
