Islamabad (Agencies): The Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs Alice Wells on Monday met Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua.
Alice Wells, who reached Pakistan on Monday, discussed bilateral relations between Islamabad and Washington in the backdrop of President Donald Trump’s South Asia policy.
According to a statement issued by the Foreign Office, matters related to regional security situation were also discussed by the officials.
This is Well’s third visit to Pakistan since August 2017, when POTUS announced his policy for Afghanistan, accusing Pakistan of providing safe havens to terrorists.
Earlier, US President Donald Trump in his New Year tweet accused Pakistan of lies and deceit in response to the aid provided to it. “They give safe havens to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!” he said on January 1.
