ISLAMABAD: Chargé d’affaires of the United States in Pakistan Angela Aggeler on Thursday called on Minister for Maritime Affairs Syed Ali Haider Zaidi.

According to an official handout, the minister shared his idea of starting a discussion to set up a green shipping corridor between Pakistan and the United States in the spirit of the recently-signed Clydebank Declaration adopted in the COP-26 conference.

The minister also discussed the possibilities of facilitating US companies willing to invest in Pakistan.

“There was a detailed exchange of ideas and opportunities where both the nations could enhance the working relationship in the maritime sector.”

It said the issues of Gwadar Port and situation in Afghanistan also came under discussion. Both of them agreed and hoped for a stable situation in Afghanistan to realise the massive potential of Afghan transit trade for Central Asian republics through Gwadar Port.

It was decided that a close contact would be kept in future to strengthen the working ties between both the nations.
