US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Chairman of the United States Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), are arriving in Pakistan today on September 5, on a one-day visit for talks on bilateral relations and strategic affairs with the newly-elected government.

Chairman US JCS General Joseph Dunford and Pompeo's delegation will be the first top-level foreign officials to visit Pakistan after Prime Minister Imran Khan assumed office after the General Election. 

According to the sources, General Dunford and the US State Secretary are expected to land at the Islamabad International Airport around 10 AM.

The US officials' arrival is significant in the light of the current US-Pakistan relations, and the Trump administration's on-and-off calls to "do more" and "no more".

Shah Mehmood Qureshi, the foreign minister of Pakistan, commented that Islamabad hopes to take forward the two-way ties in light of the mutual respect.

The US Officials will hold delegation-level talks at the Foreign Office, after a brief talk with Qureshi, who said both sides look forward to hearing each other's point of views.

It is also likely that General Dunford and Pompeo will meet PM Imran Khan and Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa, although the meetings have not been confirmed yet on the diplomatic level.

According to US Defense Secretary James Mattis, Pompeo's focus during the meetings with the top brass would be the terrorists in Pakistan and the related war being fought against them.

Despite Pakistan's new leadership, fresh expectations, and experts' belief that the two US officials' arrival in Islamabad would be a good opportunity to improve the ties, fears of relations deteriorating further still remain.
