Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi will meet US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo today (Tuesday).

Bilateral issues and regional security matters are expected to be discussed during their meeting.

Qureshi is also scheduled to meet National Security Adviser John Bolton in Washington today.

Aung San Suu Kyi will not have her Nobel Peace Prize withdrawn even though some of the actions she has taken as Myanmar’s civilian leader, the head of the Nobel Foundation has said.

Speaking days before this year’s prize is awarded, Lars Heikensten said it made no sense to withdraw awards in reaction to things that happened after they were given, as judges would constantly have to discuss laureates’ merits.
