Ambassador of Pakistan to the United States, Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry, met with Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) at the Capitol Hill today. The Ambassador 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.
The Ambassador said Pakistan saw peace and stability in Afghanistan as being vital to its own national interests. Pakistan believed this would only be possible through a political process, which was owned and led by Afghans themselves.
Ambassador Chaudhry said Pakistan had turned the corner in the fight against terrorism through comprehensive and indiscriminate operations against militants. As a result, Pakistan’s border regions had been cleared of all terrorist groups. He said Pakistan was ready to work with Afghanistan to manage the two countries’ border more vigilantly and prevent any illegal movement.
Senator Warren thanked the Ambassador Chaudhry for his briefing and appreciated Pakistan’s efforts and sacrifices in the war against terrorism.
