U.S. senior official Alice Wells to visit Pakistan next week

The senior-most US official overseeing the South Asia region will be visiting Islamabad next week, the US State Department announced on Saturday.

US Acting Assistant Secretary of State, Alice Wells will arrive Pakistan on an emergency tour on tomorrow (Monday).

Alice G Wells, who is also the Acting Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, will discuss the new American policy on Afghanistan and Pakistan's reservations on the matter with the civil-military leadership, the US State Department said.

A diplomatic source said the U.S. official, in her maiden trip to Dhaka on August 29-30, is likely to meet Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's advisors on energy, defence and global affairs.

She will then proceed to address the Indian Ocean Conference in Colombo "to discuss peace, progress, and prosperity in the Indian Ocean region".

During her first visit to Islamabad on August 3, Wells appreciated Pakistan's sacrifices in the fight against terrorism and underscored the value of cooperation.

Sri Lanka Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and several leaders and officials from the Indian Ocean region will attend the conference organised by the India Foundation.
