Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said on Thursday that Pakistan wants to improve its mutual relations with the US in multiple fields. He further added that the relations between the nations are “back to normal” now.

Addressing a ceremony of celebration of the 247th Independence Day of the US, Sharif said that Pakistan and the US made many efforts to make their relations better by putting aside any misgivings and misunderstandings.

“Over the last 75 years, our relations have had ups and downs, but on the whole, we have been very good friends,” he stated.


He said that the US was the largest trading partner of Pakistan, and both countries have played a major role in the war against terrorism.

The prime minister also appreciated US support for 2022 flood victims. “We value the support of the US, which had been the biggest donor and very helpful in providing relief to millions of flood-affected people,” he observed.

The US ambassador to Pakistan, Donald Blome, said in his remarks that the economic partnership between the countries is expanding.

Shehbaz Sharif also congratulated US President Joe Biden and the people of the United States on their 247th Independence Day.
