WASHINGTON: As Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif held meetings with senior US Administration officials including Secretary of State John Kerry here late Wednesday, there was a strong desire from both the sides to further strengthen and turn their bilateral ties into a deep and enduring multi-faceted partnership.
About counter-terrorism measures being taken by Pakistan, he said, there was no talk of “do more”. “Pakistan has done a lot, and now it is time for the world to do more,” he remarked.
To a question, the Foreign Secretary said Pakistan had spent $ 1.9 billion in the fight against terrorism over the last year from its own resources, as its leadership had taken a consensus decision to launch the operation Zarb-e-Azb and was committed to rid the country of this menace.
He said the Prime Minister also addressed a business forum organized by Pakistan-US Business Chamber of Commerce and highlighted Pakistan’s economic achievements as well as the potential and opportunities of investment in Pakistan in diverse fields. – APP
