The United States became one of the first countries to recognize Pakistan on August 14, 1947. President Harry S. Truman sent a congratulatory message to Mohammed Ali Jinnah and called Jinnah “the originator of the dream that became Pakistan.” Formal diplomatic relations were established the next day on August 15. We have a broad multi-faceted partnership with Pakistan in areas ranging from education to energy to trade and investment. The United States and Pakistan also maintain a strong security partnership.
