Spokesperson of Ministry of Foreign affairs, Dr. Muhammad Faisal on Thursday (July 4) confirmed the upcoming crucial meeting between Prime Minister Imran Khan and US President Donald Trump on July 22.
“On the invitation of US President Donald Trump, Prime Minister Imran Khan will visit Washington and hold a meeting with President Trump on July 22, 2019,” Foreign office spokesperson Faisal confirmed at the weekly news conference. “Agenda of the meeting is being developed through diplomatic channels. A detailed curtain raiser will be issued before the visit. The focus would be to refresh the bilateral relationship,” Faisal added.
Earlier Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on June 27 while talking to reporters in Islamabad had said that Prime Minister Imran Khan is expected to meet US President Donald Trump during his next month visit. Some officials linked the two leaders’ summit with the possible positive outcome of the ongoing efforts seeking a peace deal in Afghanistan.
Its worth mentioning that relation between two leaders was not so good since Imran Khan has assumed his office. Trump and Imran even had a war of words on Twitter few months back over Pakistan’s role in fighting terrorism. But a flurry of exchanges between the two countries appear to have eased friction and paved the way for much anticipated summit meeting between Trump and Imran.
