Bilawal to depart for US on May 17: FO


Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari will pay an official visit to the United States of America from May 17-18, 2022, the Foreign Office said Thursday.

This was announced by Foreign Office Spokesperson Asim Iftikhar Ahmad during his weekly press briefing held here on Thursday. During the trip, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari will hold meetings with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and other US officials, he added.

It would be Bilawal’s first official visit as the foreign minister of Pakistan on the invitation of US Secretary of State Antony Blinken. The PPP chief was invited to participate in the “Global Food Security” meeting on May 18.

Minister of State on Foreign Affairs Hina Rabbani Khar may

accompany the foreign minister as a part of his delegation.

He once again rejected any change in trade policy for India after the new government took charge in Pakistan and said that Pakistan wanted peaceful relations with India and its other neighbouring countries.

Asim Iftikhar said that talks with India were suspended after illegal Indian measures in occupied Kashmir and now the responsibility lies with India to create a suitable environment for renewed talks.
