Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States, Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry, met Senator Todd Young (Republican-Indiana) at Capitol Hill today. The Ambassador briefed Senator Young, who is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, on Pakistan-U.S. bilateral relations and shared Pakistan’s perspective on the situation in South Asia.
The Ambassador noted that Pakistan and the United States had a long history of working together to achieve mutual interests and meet common challenges. As the two countries celebrate 70 years of diplomatic relations, a broad-based partnership between Pakistan and the United States remains vital to the achievement of their common strategic and regional objectives.
Ambassador Chaudhry highlighted the upward trajectory of Pakistan’s economy, noting that Pakistan’s large and growing middle class made it an attractive destination for foreign investors. He informed Senator Young, who also deals with commerce and economic issues in the Senate, of the enormous potential for mutually beneficial economic cooperation between Pakistan and the United States.
Senator Young thanked Ambassador Chaudhry for his detailed briefing and stressed the need for close cooperation between Pakistan and the United States for peace and stability in the region.
