American Deputy Secretary of State Wendy R Sherman will be visiting Pakistan next week, which is the first official visit by someone from Biden’s administration. Recently, the Secretary of State Anthony Blinken had mentioned about reassessing US’s relationship with Pakistan, and the Central Intelligence Agency head William Burns had also visited both countries earlier this month.
Before coming to Pakistan, Wendy R Sherman will be visiting India. Her visit is scheduled for 6 October, in which the Afghanistan crisis and the subsequent issue of cross-border terrorism will be on top of her agenda.
Her visit to India will be a follow-up after the Quad Summit and the bilateral talks between US President Joe Biden and Modi.
