Washington, D.C. - U.S. Rep. David E. Bonior met with Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf on Thursday, February 14, 2002 to discuss his country's role in the war on terrorism, U.S.-Pakistani relations and the ongoing refugee crisis.

The meeting of Congressional leaders and Musharraf was part of the Pakistani president's visit to the United States this week.

Bonior praised Musharraf's leadership during this difficult time, including his determination to cultivate a long-term commitment from U.S. policy makers that acknowledges the significance of Pakistan in the region.  Afterwards, Bonior applauded Musharraf for taking "bold steps" to address the current crisis.

"President Musharraf has shown tremendous leadership," Bonior said. "The steps he has taken are very encouraging and they have further solidified the importance of the U.S.-Pakistani bilateral relationship. As allies, we are working closely on a range of issues, but given the gravity of the refugee crisis, there is still much to be done."

Bonior has met with Musharraf twice before in the past during trips to Islamabad in February 2001 and April 2000.  The congressman has a deep concern for the region and Pakistan.
