Pakistan's Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua held talks with senior officials of the Trump administration on a host of bilateral and regional issues including a commitment to defeat terror groups that threaten regional stability and security.
"They discussed the relationship between the US and Pakistan, which is based on a broad range of shared interests, including a commitment to defeat all terrorist groups that threaten regional stability and security, and a desire to build economic and commercial ties that benefit both countries, a State Department Spokesperson told PTI.
In an interaction with the local Pakistani media, Janjua, the first woman foreign secretary of Pakistan, said the recent high-level exchanges between the two countries are meant to better understand each other's perspective.
During her meeting with US officials, Janjua said she apprised them of Pakistan's concern over the border management and the existence of safe havens in Afghanistan being used by terrorists against Pakistan.
Janjua's visit comes at a time of fresh strain in ties between Islamabad and Washington after the US successfully moved the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) to place Pakistan on the global terror financing watch-list.
