Islamabad: Prime Minister Imran Khan is scheduled to visit the United States on a maiden trip on 20 July during which he is expected to discuss regional issues with United States’s President Donald Trump, according to a media report.

Imran Khan is meeting US President Donald Trump for the first time bilaterally, The Express Tribune reported. Prime Minister Imran Khan will begin his five-day trip to the United States from 20 July, official sources confirmed to the paper on Friday.

The trip, originally planned in June, was postponed because of the prime minister’s prior domestic engagements, especially due to federal budget 2019.

The Foreign Minister of Pakistan Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Thursday told reporters that a meeting between Prime Minister Imran Khan and President Donald Trump was expected soon. he, however, did not share the date of the visit.

This would be the first high-level engagement between the two countries under the Trump administration’s tenure and comes at a time when talks between the United States and Afghan Taliban are thought to have entered a decisive phase.

Relations between Pakistan and the United State have remained tense during Donald Trump’s tenure. The United State’s president has publicly said that Pakistan has given us “nothing but lies and deceit” and also suspended security and other assistance for backing terror groups.

The United States has repeatedly asked Pakistan to end its support to the militant organisations operating from within its territory against India and Afghanistan.

Efforts for arranging the Prime Minister Imran Khan-President Donald Trump meeting have been going on for months, the report said.

Some officials linked the two leaders’ summit with the possible positive outcome of the ongoing efforts seeking a peace deal in Afghanistan.

Though the bilateral ties have been hit, the United Staes president has expressed his desire to work with the Imran Khan-led government.
