U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Pakistan's Minister of Foreign Affairs Shah Mahmood Qureshi here on Wednesday agreed to make an atmosphere to reset strained bilateral relations between the two countries, the Pakistani top diplomat said.

Talking to media after the meeting, Qureshi said that the meeting was held in a very cordial manner which helped both sides break the ice in the bilateral relations.

Pompeo also held talks with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan and Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa during his short visit in Pakistan.  

The two sides agreed to hold another dialogue in Washington later this month following the UN General Assembly session, said Qureshi, saying that Pompeo invited him to visit the United States and he has accepted and will pay the visit for follow up discussions with the U.S. officials.
