ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Foreign Office (FO) on Thursday welcomed the positive indication by US President Donald Trump pertaining to seeking a great relationship with the new Pakistani leadership.

Addressing to the weekly press briefing, Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal said that Pakistan is looking forward to positive engagement with the United States at the leadership level.

The spokesperson said that President Donald Trump’s remarks are indeed a departure from his 1st January 2018 tweet. “This indicates that the US president has distanced itself from his year old tweet rebuking Pakistan.”
