“US Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia, Ambassador Alice Wells will visit Pakistan on 6 November. She will hold meeting with senior officials at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs,” he wrote in a tweet.

“The aim would be to follow up on discussions between Foreign Minister, Shah Mahmood Qureshi and Secretary of State, Michael Pompeo with a view to further strengthen bilateral relations,” he added.

Briefing media after a meeting with a US delegation led by Mike Pompeo, Shah Mehmood Qureshi in September has said that, contrary to what a section of media reported, the US delegation didn’t make any “do more” demand.

The minister maintained that the meeting with the high-level US delegation was held in a “positive environment” and helped the two countries understand each other’s viewpoint over Afghan conflict, terrorism and other outstanding issues.
