Pakistan Defence Minister Khurram Dastgir said it was not Pakistan's job to satisfy the US
Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar reached London on Saturday to meet former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, reported Dunya News.
After meeting the former prime minister, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi will leave for U.S. to address the 72nd United Nations General Assembly session to be held on September 20.
To a question, the Prime Minister said that there will be zero load-shedding in the country in November this year due to commendable efforts of the government in elimination of power crises.
It was a dressing down that left Pakistan feeling humiliated.
Trump, while announcing his policy for South Asia and Afghanistan, had hit out at Pakistan for providing safe havens to "agents of chaos" that kill Americans in Afghanistan and warned Islamabad that it has "much to lose" by harbouring terrorists.
Apart from the Abbasi-Pence huddle, a meeting between Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is also being scheduled.
Abbasi recently met U.S. ambassador to Pakistan David Hale.
Abbasi and Hale agreed that relations between the two countries should be strengthened through multi-faceted engagement.
Pakistan said on Friday that it has received India's written pleadings to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), which is hearing the case of Kulbhushan Jadhav, a retired Indian navy officer sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court for alleged espionage.
In an another important engagement ahead of his most important overseas trip since assuming office last month, Mr Abbasi met Afghan Ambassador Dr Omar Zakhilwal. Just two days ago, Pakistan's defence minister said it is not Islamabad's job to satisfy the United States, and added that his government is now "reassessing" ties with Washington.
Despite challenges in their relationship, Pakistan, Afghanistan and the U.S. have launched a new trilateral mechanism to counter Daesh threat.
