After the Prime Minister Imran Khan’s successful visit to United States in last year, the relations between the both countries are improving day by day. After restoration of US aid for Pakistan’s military, now Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) expects to resume direct flights to the United States from May this year “subject to a final clearance by the US Transportation Security Administration”, the national flag carrier’s spokesperson told local news channel.
He said negotiations between the US administration and the national airline had been underway for two years, adding that “from our end we have taken all measures that were advised”. A delegation of the US transport authority is expected to issue a final clearance in May, he said.
On the other hand, United States President, Donald Trump in a meeting with Prime Minister Imran Khan, discuss a range of issues. Trump told reporters both countries enjoy a “great relationship” and are “getting along very well.”
“We have never been closer with Pakistan the way we are right now. We are very close right now because of the relationship we have,” said Trump. Khan said many issues would be the focus of the meeting, singling out Afghanistan as a main one which he said concerned the U.S. and Pakistan. “Fortunately, we are on the same page. Both of us are interested in peace there,” said Khan.
