The White House on Wednesday confirmed that Prime Minister Imran Khan will meet the US President Donald J. Trump on July 22.

According to a press release by the White House, the US president will welcome the prime minister.

“The visit will focus on strengthening cooperation between the US and Pakistan to bring peace, stability and economic prosperity to a region that has seen far too much conflict.”_

“President Trump and PM Imran will discuss a range of issues, including counterterrorism, defense, energy and trade, with the goal of creating the conditions for a peaceful South Asia and an enduring partnership between our two countries,”* the statement added.

This will be Imran Khan’s first visit to the US since assuming power last year following PTI’s victory in the general elections.

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi had told reporters last month that President Trump had invited the prime minister in June but he could not undertake the visit because of the budget session.
