Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States, Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry, met with Ron Johnson, Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, at Capitol Hill today. Senator Johnson (R-Wisconsin) is also a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, says a press release received from Washington.
Ambassador Chaudhry briefed the Senator about Pakistan’s successes in the fight against militancy and extremism. As a result of Pakistan’s comprehensive counterterrorism operations, the Ambassador said, Pakistan’s security situation had markedly improved. The economy was resurging and foreign investor interest, including from corporate America, was high.
Ambassador Chaudhry said that, while Pakistan and the United States had made great progress in degrading the terrorist threat in Afghanistan, it is vital that Pakistan and the United States continue to work together for peace and stability in the region.
Senator Johnson appreciated Ambassador Chaudhry’s briefing, and echoed the Ambassador’s sentiments on the importance of sustained cooperation between Pakistan and the United States to the achievement of their common goals.
