(DAG US) On Friday, US President Joe Biden reaffirmed his commitment to stand alongside Pakistan’s new government in addressing the challenges confronting the nation and the wider region. This move signals a thaw in relations that had cooled amid controversies during Imran Khan’s tenure.

Biden conveyed these sentiments during his first diplomatic outreach to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif. In his letter, the US commander-in-chief stressed the importance of the partnership between the two nations in ensuring regional and global security.

Moreover, Biden highlighted shared priorities in areas such as public health, economic development, and education, affirming a dedication to progressing together. He also expressed Washington’s intent to bolster the alliance with Pakistan, particularly through initiatives like the US-Pakistan Green Alliance Framework aimed at environmental enhancement.

Biden’s letter stated, “The enduring partnership between our nations remains critical to ensuring the security of our people — and people around the world — and the United States will continue to stand with Pakistan to tackle the most pressing global and regional challenges of our time. That includes advancing our shared vision for a future of greater health security, economic growth, and access to education for all.”

Furthermore, he reiterated the commitment to support Islamabad in its efforts to recover from the devastating floods of 2022, emphasizing initiatives related to water management and agricultural development.
