United States senator Lindsey Graham called on Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmoud Qureshi at his office in Islamabad on Sunday.

During the meeting, they exchanged views on matters related to mutual and regional issues, especially peace and reconciliation in Afghanistan.

Lindsey Graham is the chairman of the US Senate’s Judicial Committee and senior member of the committee of the House of armed services and budget. Earlier, on Jan 19, the Pakistani Foreign Minister had said that his country was trying to host the next round of talks between the US and Afghan Taliban as such kind of dialogue was in the interests of the Afghan government, Taliban and the entire region.

“Solution to Afghan issue is not possible without intra-Afghan dialogue and Pakistan considers it vital for the restoration of peace in the entire region,” Shah Mahmoud Qureshi said.

The Pak Foreign Minister said relations between Pakistan and the US were gradually improving.
