The Senior official of State Department said, this year the United States has tried to improve relations between the two countries by focusing on counterterrism cooperation, Afghanistan’s future and improving market access and trade not aid with bilateral investment treaty.
It may be mentioned that United States accounts for 20 percent of Pakistan’s exports.
