Let me just say that I’m really pleased to welcome Prime Minister Sharif here. He was just telling me that he hasn’t been here since 1999 when he was last in office. He has received me several times very generously in Pakistan. We’re very anxious to have a series of high-level, important discussions over the course of the next few days – the Vice President, the President, tonight’s dinner. We have a lot to talk about and the relationship with Pakistan could not be more important. On its own, a democracy that is working hard to get its economy moving and deal with insurgency and also important to the regional stability. So, we’re very happy to have you here, Mr. Prime Minister. I look forward to the conversations.
