ISLAMABAD - President Donald Trump met Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday in Davos, on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum, and hailed the growing relationship between the United States and Pakistan.
A post-meeting U.S. statement said the two leaders agreed to continue efforts to seek a lasting political settlement to the war in Afghanistan, America's longest. It said the meeting also discussed, among other issues, ways to expand U.S.-Pakistan trade.
"We're getting along very well. I would say we've never been closer with Pakistan than we are right now," Trump told reporters at the start of his meeting with Khan.
This was the third interaction between the two leaders since Trump hosted Khan at the White House in July 2019, which underscores warming bilateral relations "It's great to be with a very good friend of mine, the Prime Minister of Pakistan," Trump remarked.
The progress in Pakistan's long, close and turbulent relationship with the United States stems from Islamabad's cooperation in facilitating Washington's ongoing peace talks with the Taliban insurgency in neighboring Afghanistan.
