WASHINGTON: Ambassador of Pakistan to the United States, Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry met with Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) at the Capitol Hill, where he apprised the senator, who is a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, on Pakistan’s successes in the war against terrorism, besides briefing her on Pakistan’s perspective on the situation in South Asia, including Afghanistan.
Ambassador Chaudhry reiterated the importance of Pakistan and the United States working together towards achieving their common strategic and regional objectives, a press release from the Pakistan embassy in Washington said.
The Ambassador said Pakistan sees peace and stability in Afghanistan as being vital to its own national interests. Pakistan believes this would only be possible through a political process owned and led by Afghans themselves.
Pakistan has turned the corner in the fight against terrorism through comprehensive and indiscriminate operations against militants, he said, as a result of which Pakistan’s border regions have been cleared of all terrorist groups.
He said Pakistan is ready to work with Afghanistan to manage the two countries’ border more vigilantly and prevent any illegal movement.
Senator Warren thanked Ambassador Chaudhry for his briefing and appreciated Pakistan’s efforts and sacrifices in the war against terrorism.
