The Trump transition team has clarified that though US president-elect Donald Trump did have a ‘productive conversation’ with Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif over telephone on Wednesday, it lacked the “flowery language” included in the Pakistani version of this talk.

According to a report in ‘Dawn’, the Trump transition team has pointed out that the Pakistani readout of the talk “committed the president-elect to more than what he meant”.

The statement, however, adds that President-elect Trump is looking for a strong personal relationship with Prime Minister Sharif.

“President-elect Trump and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif spoke … had a productive conversation about how the United States and Pakistan will have a strong working relationship in the future,” the statement issued by the Trump transition team said.

“President-elect Trump also noted that he is looking forward to a lasting and strong personal relationship with Prime Minister Sharif,” it added.
