Breaking: Trump 'looks forward to' meeting Pakistan's new leadership

Washington, January 03: United States President Donald Trump said Wednesday he wants a "great relationship" with Pakistan and is looking forward to meeting the new leadership in that country.

From this aspect, Donald Trump told his Cabinet colleagues in the same meeting that he has ended USD 1.3 billion in aid to Pakistan because "this South Asian country houses enemies".

Donald Trump underscored that his administration has initiated peace talks with the Taliban. He also announced that a meeting with the new leadership of Pakistan will take place "very soon".

Earlier, South Carolina Senator Lindsay Graham, who is considered close to President Trump, told media that in an interview that if Pakistan helped the US in bringing the Taliban to the table for negotiations, then the US would focus on counterterrorism and the IS.

The Republican Senator wants the US to offer Pakistan a free trade agreement as an incentive for Islamabad to push the Taliban to the peace table to end the Afghan war.

The US President alleged that Pakistan has not been fair to the United States.

"We want to have a great relationship with Pakistan, but they house the enemy. They take care of the enemy. We just can t do that," US President said.
