US lawmakers suggest continuing ties with Pakistan: report


WASHINGTON: Despite the increasing hostility against Pakistan in the United States, there are still lawmakers who suggest continuing ties with Pakistan to encourage it to cooperate with the US in the war against terrorism, reported a local English newspaper.

Congressman Brad Sherman, who met Premier Shahid Khaqan Abbasi in Washington earlier this month, states that as a member the House Foreign Affairs Committee, he knows the importance of US-Pakistan ties and significance of the friendship between the countries.

Sherman is among 35 US lawmakers who sent messages of support on the Pakistan Day.
