KARACHI: US Consul General Karachi Grace W. Shelton arrived at Muttahida Qaumi Movement (Pakistan) office and held meeting with its leader Farooq Sattar, Samaa reported.

According to our correspondent, the US Consul General conveyed a special message to Farooq Sattar, who has recently parted ways with the party’s London secretariat as well as its founder Altaf Hussain following his anti-Pakistan speech.

The meeting, held at MQM’s PIB Colony office, came an hour after MQM and other parties in the Sindh Assembly jointly tabled a resolution and unanimously adopted it, demanding Altaf’s trail for high treason in a historic development.

However, analysts said the Consul General’s meeting was prescheduled and not anyway associated with the resolution.

“US wants to maintain better relations with political parties,” Samaa’s senior anchor and analyst Nadeem Malik said, while commenting on the situation.
