The United States’ ambassador to Pakistan Richard Olson assured that Pakistan’s apprehensions will be given reasonable heed on the Border Security Agreement (BSA) recently signed between US and Afghanistan.
He called on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday at the Prime Minister House.
Meanwhile, the long-delayed security agreement permitting American troops to stay on the soil of Afghanistan after the end of this year was signed by newly sworn Afghan President Ashraf Ghani a day ago.
Under the terms of the treaty, 12,000 foreign military personnel are expected to stay after 2014 when the combat mission of the US-led North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) force in Afghanistan ends.
According to the sours, the meeting between Nawaz and Olson was a follow-up after the premier’s talk with US Vice President Joe Biden in New York on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.
