US President Biden will soon talk to PM Imran Khan: Wendy Sherman

US Deputy Secretary of State Wendy R Sherman Friday said she believed President Joe Biden will soon talk to Prime Minister Imran Khan.

During an interaction with a group of editors, the top US diplomat said that the Biden administration was well aware of Pakistan’s concerns over a bill introduced in the US Senate.

“We have an idea that every country wants to have a telephone conversation with US President. I am sure that this conversation will be held with Imran Khan soon.”

Responding to a question, Sherman said, “I am sure that this contact will take place soon, so I don’t think it should mean anything else.”

“I don’t think there is a need for more speculation about not talking on the telephone so far.”

Replying to a question about a bill presented in September by 22 Republican senators targeting Pakistan, Sherman said, “We get hundreds of bills; thousands of people are behind them but we are well aware of Pakistan’s concerns and are closely looking at the situation”.
