The caretaker Prime Minister said the government places importance on partnership with the United States and deeply values the shared commitment to economic prosperity, democracy and stability in the region.
Earlier, the US Secretary of State, in a tweet, congratulated Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar on assuming the office of Caretaker Prime Minister.
Kakar — a former senator and a leader of the Balochistan Awami Party (BAP) — took oath as the eighth caretaker PM on August 14, which also marked the country’s 77th Independence Day.
In his term, which is longer than a regular interim PM’s, Kakar will see the country through elections and also have to navigate through economic and political uncertainty with his team.
