Pakistan desires to change: US diplomat

Agency News

Islamabad, Feb 25 : Pakistan has “a desire to change” its ways and be removed from US blacklist of countries that infringe on religious freedoms, a US special envoy said.
Sam Brownback, the US ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom, said he travelled to Pakistan to discuss Islamabad being newly placed on the blacklist, which can lead to a country facing economic sanctions, Dawn reported.

The US put Pakistan on its religious freedom blacklist in December, though US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held back on imposing sanctions on Islamabad.
Mr Brownback met Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, who promised to appoint a point person to handle the US concerns. (UNI)
