The United States of America notified the Congress on Friday of its decision to approve foreign military sales worth USD 125 million to support the F-16 fighter jets of Pakistan. This move of the US comes days after Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan went to meet USA President Donald Trump on a much talked about the trip. Khan met Trump in his Oval Office on Monday. Both sides had declared the meeting as highly successful. The determination in this regard was made by the State Department and is the first after all security aid to Pakistan was suspended by Trump in January 2018.
