US President-elect Donald Trump says Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is a ‘Fantastic Person,’ and looking towards to meet him soon.
He was talking to Mr Sharif when the latter called him to congratulate.
The prime minister invited Trump to Pakistan.
Mr. Trump said that he would love to come to a “fantastic country, fantastic place of fantastic people.”
“Please convey to the Pakistani people that they are amazing and all Pakistanis I have known are exceptional people, said Mr. Donald Trump.
President Trump said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif you have a very good reputation. You are a terrific guy. You are doing amazing work which is visible in every way. I am looking forward to see you soon. As I am talking to you Prime Minister, I feel I am talking to a person I have known for long. Your country is amazing with tremendous opportunities. Pakistanis are one of the most intelligent people. I am ready and willing to play any role that you want me to play to address and find solutions to the outstanding problems. It will be an honour and I will personally do it. Feel free to call me any time even before 20th January that is before I assume my office.”
Meanwhile, Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan said Sharif’s conversation with Trump cannot “save him” from the Panama Papers scandal.
The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chairman said that while it was good news that Trump spoke to Sharif, the chat will do no favour to the Prime Minister in the Panamagate case.
Khan was referring to Sharif’s telephonic conversation with Trump on Wednesday, during which the Prime Minister congratulated America’s president-elect on his recent victory in the US polls.
In a taunting reference to a letter by Qatari Prince Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al-Thani, the PTI chairman said Sharif could not be saved from the Panama Papers scandal “even if a Trump letter arrived”.
The Qatari Prince’s letter was submitted in the Supreme Court in connection with the Panamagate case.
In the letter, the Qatari royal had described his father’s business ties with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s family and his involvement in the London apartments that are at the centre of the Panama Papers controversy.
