Islamabad, June 29: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan is scheduled next month to embark on an official maiden visit to the United States of America (USA), and hold a meeting with President Donald Trump.

As per the official sources, the visit was originally planned to take place in June, but delayed due to domestic engagements of Khan which included the federal budget of 2019, and has been re-scheduled to kick-off on July 20.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Pakistan foreign minister, on Thursday, told reporters a scheduled meeting between Khan and Trump was likely to occur soon, though he did not have further details over the development, according to ANI news reports.

The foreign minister further stressed the prime minister would be paying a maiden visit to Washington DC at an invitation from the US president, who sought to discuss some important regional matters.

Khan will embark on five-day maiden visit to the US marking the first top-level engagement between both the nations under Trump’s presidential tenure, as well as, it comes at times when dialogues between Afghan Taliban and the US are expected to have entered a final phase.

Relations between Washington and Pyongyang have been tensed since Trump assumed the presidential office. Trump – highly critical of Islamabad’s role in Kabul and the entire war on terrorism, have recently halted security, visas and other assistance to Pakistan.
