US snub Pakistan PM Imran Khan

Washington, Jul 21 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 7/21/2019 11:44:48 AM IST

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s maiden trip to the US, where he is slated to meet US President Donald Trump, started on a bad note. It looked like the Donald Trump administration doesn’t care much about Pakistan premier’s maiden visit.  Reports have emerged that not a single US official came to receive the Pakistan prime minister at the airport. Khan, who had boarded a commercial flight instead of a private jet to cut down expenses, was instead received by Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi at the Dulles International Airport.

A video shared by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) showed the prime minister deboarding the commercial flight and being received later by Qureshi and Pakistan ambassador to the US Asad M Khan. The Pakistan Embassy in the US claimed that the PM was received by senior officials of the US State Department.

Khan arrived in Washington for his three-day visit to meet President Donald Trump and is accompanied by Pakistan’s Chief of the Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa, Director General of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Faiz Hameed and Advisor to Prime Minister for Commerce Abdul Razzak Dawood.
