Pak-US ties – Pakistan looks to build development partnership with US, says Dr Mooed Yusuf

National Security Adviser says Pakistan’s vision is to achieve economic security focused on development partnerships

Pakistan looks forward to making a fresh start with the United States under the new Biden administration with the focus on “development partnerships.”

Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on National Security Division and Strategic Policy Planning, Dr. Moeed Yusuf, said Pakistan is eager for renewed bilateral relations with the US and fresh conversations that move beyond Afghanistan and focus solely on Pakistan-US ties.

He shared the views during a talk titled “Biden Administration and Pakistan” co-organized by The Islamabad Policy Research Institute (IPRI) and The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS).

Pakistan looks towards truly bilateral Pakistan-US relations that are “not clouded by hyphenating the relationship with US policy towards other countries in the region.” Pakistan wants to have honest and candid conversations with the new US administration on what Pakistan and the US can do together and what cannot be achieved, he added.

Economic partnership with the US

Dr. Moeed Yusuf shared that the number one priority of Pakistan is to establish an economic partnership, while other priorities include tackling global challenges, formalizing security partnerships, and ensuring regional peace.

Talking about the future course of action, Dr. Moeed Yusuf said that Pakistan’s vision is of economic security, connectivity, and development partnerships.

“We want to talk about economic partnerships, climate change, global health, co-investing in Afghanistan, regional peace” with the new US administration, he said.
