US President-elect today told Prime Minister that he is willing to play any role that wants to find solutions to its outstanding problems.

Trump made these remarks as Sharif called him to congratulate on his recent victory.

"I am ready and willing to play any role that you want me to play to address and find solutions to the outstanding problems. It will be an honour and I will personally do it. Feel free to call me any time, even before 20th January, that is before I assume my office," Trump was quoted as saying in a statement released by the Prime Minister's Office.

During the telephone conversation, Trump also reportedly praised Sharif and expressed his desire to meet the prime minister soon, Radio reported.

According to the The Press Information Department’s press release, Trump  told Sharif he is “doing amazing work which is visible in every way”, that the Prime Minister should “feel free to call him anytime” even before he is sworn in on January 20 next year.

This is the readout: 

Prime Minister Muhammad called President-elect USA and felicitated him on his victory. President Trump said Prime Minister you have a very good reputation. You are a terrific guy. You are doing amazing work which is visible in every way. I am looking forward to see you soon. As I am talking to you Prime Minister, I feel I am talking to a person I have known for long. Your country is amazing with tremendous opportunities. Pakistanis are one of the most intelligent people. I am ready and willing to play any role that you want me to play to address and find solutions to the outstanding problems. It will be an honor and I will personally do it. Feel free to call me any time even before 20th January that is before I assume my office.

On being invited to visit by the Prime Minister, Mr. Trump said that he would love to come to a fantastic country, fantastic place of fantastic people. Please convey to the Pakistani people that they are amazing and all Pakistanis I have known are exceptional people, said Mr. Donald Trump.

Sharif invited Trump to visit Pakistan.

In his reply, Trump said he would love to visit the country and meet its people.

Earlier, Trump had said that if elected, he'd like to mediate between India and Pakistan. But like the Obama administration, Trump also said that he would only mediate if both countries asked him to do so.
