The foreign office (FO) says it is satisfied with the ongoing Pakistan-US strategic dialogue and believes that the US will review its drone policy.

According to the Foreign Office spokesperson Abdul Basit, Energy, Health, Economy and issues related to flooding were discussed during the dialogue.

He said the American president will visit Pakistan next year.

Basit further added that the voice of Kashmiris can not be chocked and urged India to start a round of talks.

The spokesperson said that the foreign office has suggested to India that it form a judicial commission for a review of the situation in Kashmir.

He also said there is no change on Pakistan's policy on Iran's nuclear programme, adding that Iran's nuclear programme should be resolved peacefully.

A Pakistani delegation is in Washington for a three-day US-Pakistan Strategic Dialogue.

The Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that the meeting with President Obama will lead to a positive outcome and welcomed the US presidents decision to visit Pakistan next year.

Defence Minister Ahmed Mukhtar also confirmed that the meeting had been positive.

gangly khan | 11 years ago | Reply At the end of such meetings our politicians make statement that meeting was positive. If it is positive its effect should be felt by masses. If such meetings do create any impact then what is its use.
