United States President-elect Donald Trump said on Wednesday he would love to visit Pakistan.

“Trump said he would love to come to a fantastic country, fantastic place of fantastic people,” a statement issued by the PM House said. Prime Nawaz Sharif phoned Trump to felicitate him for becoming the 46th president of the United States after the November elections.



“Please convey to the Pakistani people that they are amazing and all Pakistanis I have known are exceptional people," the new US leader told the prime minister.

Resolution of conflicts

Hinting at playing a mediator in resolving the longstanding dispute between Islamabad and New Delhi, the US president-elect said he was ready to play any role to find solutions to the outstanding problems. “It will be an honour and I will personally do it.”

stevenson | 4 years ago | Reply @Khansahib: If you read US media or watch US TV, most observers accept that Trump did say what Nawaz says. It's a sign which encouraged Muslims in US and in the Muslim world that Trump is not as bad as he pretends when he says he wants to stop Muslims. This is what CNN commentators said yesterday.
Khansahib | 4 years ago | Reply And now Trump team has denied this account-basically saying that polite conversation is not the same as outline of state policy. Pakistan government has an egg on their face which they smashed themselves. As the joker would say- Pakistan, why so desperate?
