The United States on Thursday appreciated Pakistan's efforts in securing the release of western hostages from Afghanistan.

The premier held a telephonic conversation with the U.S. president, wherein both leaders discussed bilateral relations and the regional situation.

U.S. President Donald Trump has called Pakistan's prime minister Imran Khan and Afghan president Ashraf Ghani to thank them for facilitating the release of an American and an Australian who were held hostage by the Taliban since 2016.

However, Trump still looks to withdraw troops from Afghanistan US officials said Washington would continue to support efforts for an "enduring outcome" and would even support the continued Indian involvement in that country, despite the fact that it could create consternation in Pakistan.

The Prime Minister re-affirmed Pakistan's commitment to the advancement of the Afghan peace process. The two top leaders have also agreed to work together to achieve common objectives in the future. Later, the meeting between Imran Khan and President Trump in Washington this July gave a positive dimension to the otherwise roller-coaster bilateral ties as the discussion featured Trump's mediation offer on Kashmir.

Recalling their conversations in Washington and NY, the two leaders agreed to deepen bilateral collaboration, including at relevant multilateral fora.

Trump and Khan also recalled their one-on-one conversations in Washington and NY earlier this year, with both leaders agreeing to expand bilateral collaboration between their two nations, including at relevant multilateral fora.

"President Donald J. Trump spoke with Prime Minister Imran Khan of Pakistan".

More than two months after the cancellation of the previous year-long talks between the United States and the Taliban in Doha, President Donald Trump seemed to indicate in a phone-in interview with Fox News on Saturday morning that the negotiations with the Taliban were back on. He also thanked the Afghan president for his cooperation in the release of two foreign professors, reported Tolo News.

"We join the families of Kevin King and Tim Weeks in celebrating their release from Taliban captivity".

The legislation comes after President Trump in September declared peace talks with the Taliban "dead".

The Taliban outfit set free two lecturers of AUAF including an American and an Australian on Tuesday as part of the prisoners' swap for three high-level Haqqani group's leaders to accelerate the peace process in Afghanistan.
