WASHINGTON, Sept 22 (APP): Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar has called for greater market access for Pakistani products in the United States in an effort to strengthen the South Asian country’s economy. During talks with US officials as she continues her U.S. visit, Ms. Khar said that Pakistan was hopeful that at some point soon the two countries will negotiate a free-trade agreement that would open up both Pakistani and US markets to products made by the other. In the short term, the foreign minister added, Pakistan was urging the US to put together a trade package that would give greater access to Pakistani products now and thus strengthen the Pakistani economy.
