Trump presents new opportunity to engage with US: Musharraf

Washington

Former President Pervez Musharraf urged Pakistan on Thursday to engage with the Trump administration as the change in Washington presents Islamabad with an opportunity to improve its relations with the United States.
Addressing the launching ceremony of a report on US-Pakistan relations, Musharraf noted that the Trump administration had come to power with “a clean slate” and a “very positive” attitude and was eager to understand the complexities of the issues it confronts in various parts of the world.
“We need to engage with the new government and project our point of view in a better way,” said the former Pakistani ruler who seems to have many supporters in Washington as a large crowd showed up to hear him. The organisers, the School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University, Washington, had to turn back many as they did not have enough space.—INP
