PM Imran arrives on three-day visit to US

PM Imran arrives on three-day visit to US

Prime Minister Imran Khan has arrived in Washington on his three-day visit to the United States in the wee hours of Sunday.

The prime minister is visiting Washington on the invitation of President Donald Trump.

The premier is accompanied by Adviser to PM on Commerce Abdul Razzak Dawood, Special Assistant on Overseas Zulfi Bukhari and Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa while Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi is already in Washington as part of the entourage.

CEO of Qatar Airways Akbar Albaker called on Prime Minister Imran Khan in Doha, Qatar on Saturday morning during transit to Washington

This is Imran Khan’s maiden visit to the United States after assuming office.

The trip was originally planned in June but was postponed because of the PM’s prior domestic engagements, including the federal budget.

The prime minister is expected to discuss regional issues with US President Donald Trump during his visit.

Relations between Pakistan and the US have remained strained since Trump took charge of the White House.

Trump, highly critical of Pakistan’s role in Afghanistan and overall war on terror, suspended the security and other assistance to Pakistan.

Last year he and PM Imran had a war of words on Twitter after the US president reiterated his allegations against Pakistan for “playing a double game”.

Pakistani officials, however, feel that direct interaction between PM Imran and Trump can help address some of the misgivings.
