Doors now open for revival of diplomatic relations between US, Pakistan: FM Qureshi

Minister for Foreign Affairs Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Tuesday said United States President Donald Trump has accepted an invitation to visit Pakistan extended to him by Prime Minister Imran Khan.

The foreign minister was addressing a press conference in Washington after three consecutive meetings between the senior leadership of both countries.

“During this tour, the thing that I find unique is that these people have seen the US [Pakistani] community’s closeness to this prime minister. You saw that there were thousands gathered in the Capital One arena.

“Even in this very room, we have seen extremely powerful prime ministers and presidents in the past having to address empty chairs.

“The point is, the people that came there and the love that they expressed — that was a message from overseas Pakistanis. I have never seen this kind of a show before.

“This was a very positive message and we are very happy with it,” Qureshi said.
