Washington, May 23: The United States lawmakers have on Wednesday urged President Donald Trump-led government to assist Pakistan to overcome its current economic crisis, while asking Pakistan to focus on attracting people and creating more opportunities for them.

According to Dawn news reports, during the annual Iftar of the Pakistani American Political Action Committee (PAKPAC), the lawmakers on Tuesday advised Trump administration not to opt war with Iran as it would create problems for the entire region.

While highlighting the importance and need to revive once strong bilateral and diplomatic relations between Islamabad and Washington, the founder chairperson of the Pakistan caucus in the US Congress, Congressman Sheila Jackson Lee, emphasized the need of assistance for Pakistan to overcome its economic crisis.

She said, “We should do whatever we can to ensure that there’s an improvement in the lives of Pakistani people.” She added, the Pakistani government should need to focus over providing “education and development opportunities” to its citizens.

Congressman Jim Banks, the Republican co-chair of the Pakistan Caucus, said, “To me, it (US-Pakistan relationship) matters because of the important contributions you (the Pakistan-American community) make here.”

Congressman Elissa Slotkin urged the Pakistani-American community to make their presence in US politics. A former general, Congressman Jack Begman, advised the US administration to avoid “muscle flexing” and resolve its differences with Tehran, peacefully.

Rashida Tlaib, a Muslim Congressman, said Muslims “have been unjustly targeted to ignite fear and promote an agenda of hate … we recommit to being rooted in justice, inclusivity and a sense of belonging.”
