After Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi’s claims that Prime Minister Imran Khan will hold wide ranging talks with the US leadership during his visit to the United States, now Federal Minister for Aviation Ghulam Sarwar Khan has also said that direct flights between Pakistan and the United States may start following Prime Minister Imran Khan’s visit to Washington.
He was speaking to media in Karachi. “All airports across the country are being transformed on modern lines,” the minister said. Highly modernized security systems are being installed at the airports while officials of Airport Security Force (ASF) will be equipped with new weapons and vehicles, Khan assured adding that all these steps will further help to operationalize state-of-the-art security.
Earlier, while addressing a press conference in Washington ahead of Prime Minister’s visit Shah Mahmood Qureshi said it seeks to reset Pakistan-US relations with a focus on expanding bilateral cooperation in place of Afghanistan-centered relations over the last several years.
