Finance Minister Senator Mohammad Ishaq Dar today held a detailed meeting with the US National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. McMaster at the White House

At the culmination of his bilateral visit to Washington, the Finance Minister Senator Mohammad Ishaq Dar today held a detailed meeting with the US National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. McMaster at the White House. He was assisted by Ambassador Aizaz Chaudhry.

The two sides reviewed the state of play in the relationship and emphasized the need to have continued engagement on issues of mutual interest. The Finance Minister highlighted the economic reforms agenda of the Prime Minister which led to the macro-economic stabilization and earned appreciation by the international financial institutions. Updating the NSA on Pakistanís security situation, the Finance Minister stressed that Pakistanís commitment to fight terrorism from its soil was manifested by the successful conclusion of the operation Zarb-e-Azb which was now being followed by a nationwide combing operation Rad-ul-Fisad. As a result of these efforts, the incidence of terrorism in Pakistan had significantly reduced.

The US side noted Pakistanís sacrifices in war against terrorism and its support to strengthen Pakistanís counter terrorism capabilities. NSA McMaster also briefed the Finance Minister about his recent trip to the region which aimed to assess the ground situation for the on-going US policy review for Afghanistan. The two sides agreed that peace and stability in the region was a mutual goal and both the countries would continue to work to this end.

The Finance Minister met with the senior US leadership in his capacity as the Special Envoy of the Prime Minister.
