Pakistan turns down US invitation to Summit for Democracy

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has declined to participate in the Summit for Democracy, which is being held virtually on Dec 9-10, and to be hosted by US President Joe Biden.

“We are thankful to the United States for inviting Pakistan for participation in the Summit for Democracy. We remain in contact with the US on a range of issues and believe that we can engage on this subject at an opportune time in the future”, said the Foreign Office, while diplomatically declining the invite.

Washington, however, was told that Pakistan valued its partnership with the US which it wished to expand both bilaterally as well as in terms of regional and international cooperation.

The invitation comes at a time when after nearly a year in office, Joe Biden has not made any direct contact with Prime Minister Imran Khan, while he has called or met with many world leaders .
