Obama to visit Pakistan next year: Foreign Office

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office spokesman has said that the meeting of the Pakistani delegation with US President Barrack Hussain Obama remained very successful and the US President would visit Pakistan next year.

The spokesman also said that the reason of failure of Pak-India composite dialogue is the inflexible Indian stance on the dispute.

In the weekly media briefing in Islamabad, the Foreign Office spokesman said that the expected visit of the US President next year would be first of its kind in a democratic Pakistan which would be fruitful. The spokesman briefed the media that security issues and flood-destruction would be discussed today in the Pak-US strategic dialogue.

FO spokesman Abdul Basit also said that Pakistan’ stance on Iranian nuclear programme remains unaltered. Peaceful nuclear programme is Iranian prerogative. He said that Pakistan has given suggestion to India for sending a judicial commission to probe the Mumbai attacks. In an answer to a question the spokesman said that Pakistan’s envoy in Iran M.B.Abbasi has not been called back due to NRO; infact his contract had expired.
