The United States (US) Department of State on Wednesday said the White House has not confirmed reports of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s visit to the US.

During a press briefing, US State Department Spokesperson Morgan Ortagus said that a meeting between Prime Minister Imran Khan and President Donald Trump is not confirmed.

She said that she would reach to the White House to confirm or not confirm the visit, adding that “To my knowledge, that has actually not been confirmed by the White House. I know that I have read the same reports that you have, but I would reach out to the White House to confirm or not confirm that visit, but that’s — we don’t have anything to announce here from the State Department,” Ortagus said.

On the other hand, while addressing the Pakistani embassy in Washington, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Zulfi Bukhari has assured to surface details of PM Imran’s visit in few days.

Last week, reports emerged that PM Imran Imran was likely to meet US President Trump, with high-level officials, during a five-day visit to the US on July 20, to discuss bilateral relations between the two countries, regional issues and the Afghan peace process.

In September, the prime minister will travel to New York to represent Pakistan at the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
