US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin to meet Pakistan Army Chief at Pentagon

Washington. US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin will meet Pakistan Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa at the Pentagon on Tuesday. This meeting is going to take place amid signs of increasing military cooperation between the two countries. Pakistan's Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari last week met several top officials of the Biden administration, including Secretary of State Antony Blinken, in Washington.

Austin will welcome Bajwa to the Pentagon, after which the two will discuss bilateral and regional issues. America's relations with Pakistan have improved in recent months, especially in terms of military cooperation. Last month, the US announced a package of US $ 450 million for Pakistan for the maintenance of F-16 fighter jets.
