Ambassador Lodhi said that the prime minister would "outline Pakistan's position on key worldwide political, social and development issues of vital concern to the country".

Earlier Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi arrived in New York Monday to participate in the 72nd UN General Assembly Session. Unveiled by United States President Donald Trump last month, the policy, unbound by timelines, seeks an outright military victory over the Taliban [Afghan resistance] and calls upon India to share the burden of economic engagement with Afghanistan.

Speaking to Geo News, Abbasi said: "Pakistan has made clear its national policy to America".

Issuing his remarks from the capital, Nisar reacted to statements given by government officials, adding that the party should treat its shortcomings. It is entitled: "The responsibility to protect and the prevention of genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity".

Other meetings will be with the Jordanian King and leaders of Turkey, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Iran, the United Kingdom and Nepal.

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said that Pakistan is open to investment by foreign companies.

Besides, the prime minister will hold a number of bilateral meetings with world leaders including the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and the US Vice President Mike Pence on the sidelines of the session.

Both the sides noted that there was no military solution to the Afghan conflict and stressed the need for efforts for a regional approach for an internal political settlement in Afghanistan through an Afghan-owned Afghan-led peace process.

Prior to leaving for the USA where he will attend the UNGA session, the prime minister held an hour-long meeting with Nawaz Sharif.

President Erdogan appreciated the strengthening of the bilateral relations through concrete cooperation in various fields and the commonality of views between the two countries on key global and regional issues.

He's likely to use his interactions with American officials to halt a rapid deterioration in US-Pakistan relations, reports said.
