Islamabad: Pakistan's Special Assistant to the Prime Minister Tariq Fatemi told US Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman that Islamabad views the United States as an ‘important partner in its efforts to revive” the country’s ailing economy.

State Department spokesperson Ned Price said Deputy Secretary Sherman noted the 75th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the United States and Pakistan and “reaffirmed our shared goals for enhancing the US-Pakistan relationship by advancing our economic and commercial ties and health cooperation”.

"The Deputy Secretary and Special Assistant to the Prime Minister also discussed coordination on Afghanistan, regional stability, and the devastating effects of Putin’s invasion of Ukraine on food security in Pakistan and worldwide," she said.

A Pakistan Embassy press release said Fatemi told the US official that “Pakistan seeks close and cordial relations with the US on the basis of equality, mutual cooperation and mutual benefit”, reports Dawn News.

He told the deputy secretary that “Pakistan is an important player in promoting regional peace, security and prosperity and taking the bilateral relationship forward in a substantive manner would serve the interests of both countries."

Fatemi told Sherman that Islamabad viewed Washington as “an important partner in its efforts to revive Pakistan’s economy,” the embassy said.
