Pakistan’s Prime Minister to Meet with Trump in Washington

ISLAMABAD – Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan will meet with United States President Donald Trump in Washington next week, officials said, in what will be his first official visit to the North American country since his election last year.

Khan’s visit to Washington to meet Trump comes at a moment of strained relations between the two countries.

“On the invitation of President Donald J. Trump, Prime Minister Imran Khan will visit the United States of America on July 21-23, 2019,” Pakistan’s foreign ministry said in a statement overnight Wednesday.

Khan will meet with Trump on July 22 in a visit seeking to “renew and reinvigorate long-standing ties between Pakistan and the United States.”

During his visit, the Pakistani leader is also scheduled to meet members of congress and business leaders.

The visit comes as peace talks are underway between the US and the Taliban to bring an end to 17 years of war in Afghanistan.

The Pakistani government has stated on several occasions that it is playing a supportive role in the talks between the two sides.

However, relations between Islamabad and Washington have been rocky in recent months.

Last year, Trump accused the Pakistan government of having helped hide terrorist Osama Bin Laden, and not having done enough for the US despite receiving $1.3 billion from its coffers.

In January 2018, Washington announced the suspension of a large part of its security aid to Pakistan until Islamabad took decisive action against terrorist groups such as the Taliban, which it claimed was destabilizing the region and threatening American personnel.

The US and Afghanistan for years have accused Pakistan of providing shelter to the Taliban’s Haqqani network, a claim Islamabad denies.
