The US acting assistant secretary of state for South and Central Asia, Alice G Wells, who was scheduled to arrive in Islamabad on Monday on an emergency visit, has postponed her visit.
According to Express News, due to senior officials being tied up with prior commitments and having no time, Wells has put off her tour.
The spokesperson for the US embassy has said in a statement that Wells will now arrive in the country next week.
Wells, who is also the Acting Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, will discuss the new American policy on Afghanistan and Pakistan’s reservations on the matter with the civil-military leadership, the US State Department has said.
Her visit to Islamabad will be the American diplomat’s second this month which follows President Donald Trump’s announcement of new Afghan policy with deployment of thousands more troops in the war-torn country and pillorying Pakistan for offering safe haven to militants.
