A US delegation led by Vice Minister for State Alice Wells will reach Islamabad on Monday (August 5) on a five days visit to Pakistan. She will hold talks with Pakistani officials, as the Afghan peace process intensifies, diplomatic sources said.
Alice Wells and US President Donald Trump’s administration’s point-person for South and Central Asia was going to be a part of the delegation in Washington, she will hold meetings with the Civil and Military leadership of the country. The sources further said that this would be a follow-up of the US-Pakistan consultations that began in Washington when Prime Minister Imran Khan visited and met Trump at the White House on July.
They also said if the Doha talks led to an agreement between the United States and Taliban, President Trump might visit Afghanistan in September to finalise the deal. And if Mr Trump visits Afghanistan, Pakistan would try to bring him to Islamabad as well to further strengthen the impression that relations between Islamabad and Washington are improving rapidly, according to the sources.
