Photo: Radio PakistanPrime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday met United States Senator Lindsey Graham at the Prime Minister Office in Islamabad to discuss bilateral relations between the two countries, reported Radio Pakistan. Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi was also present as the prime minister and the senator discussed regional security situation in light of the Afghan peace talks. Graham, the head of the US Senate Judiciary Committee and a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, had earlier met Prime Minister Imran on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly session in September.They had also held a meeting in July when the prime minister had traveled to the US on a week-long official tour to mend the strained relationship between Islamabad and Washington. Graham, at times considered an aide to US President Donald Trump, has been a vocal advocate of revitalising US-Pakistan ties in the interest of regional peace and security. In earlier meetings with PM Imran, Graham had called for sustained and high-level engagement between the two countries, and appreciated Pakistani support for peace and reconciliation in Afghanistan. Last week, US Special Envoy to Afghanistan Zalmay Khalizad had met high-ranking officials in Pakistan after the US resumed peace talks with Taliban earlier this month following a brief pause. Pakistan has on numerous occasions called for a political solution to the Afghan conflict, and even facilitated the engagement between the US and the Taliban in a bid to end the armed conflict in the war-torn neighbouring country.
