Deeper reflections

The United States of America initiated diplomatic relations with Pakistan from the very first day of its establishment as a new State. This gesture from the USA validated Pakistan’s birth as a new power on the international stage.  
 

This historical fact and evidence confirm -- without a shadow of a doubt -- that United States of America and Pakistan are friends. The historical continuity of this friendship between two freedom-loving people is a destiny that will be manifested through enhanced connectivity and cultural ties.  

 

We are hopeful that friendship and warm relations are a shared goal of both United States of America and Pakistan. To this end -- the Government and people of Pakistan are determined to overcome tensions and frictions of the recent past and build a lasting tradition of friendship.
