Pick-up vans with massive billboards started running on the streets of Washington DC a day before Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan arrived in the city for his first visit to the United States for talks with Trump to "refresh" bilateral relations. "The campaign aims to draw attention of the U.S. and request President Donald Trump to help stop human rights abuses in Balochistan, including enforced disappearances by state forces", the Baloch Republican Party said.

Mr. Khan is also expected to brief President Trump about the steps he has taken to normalise relations with India, especially after the Pulwama terror attack in Kashmir. The first meeting will be in the Oval Office and the second in the cabinet room. Among the participants was Yazidi activist Nadia Murad, whose exchange with Trump went viral after he asked her why she had been given a Nobel Prize.

PM Imran met with Tahir Javed, a Texas-based Pakistani businessman and a member of the Democratic Party, Javaid Anwar, a Pakistani American businessman, as well as a group of prospective investors.

Prime Minister Imran Khan during his three-day visit is scheduled to meet US President Donald Trump on July 22.

Khan invited the businesspeople and investors to benefit from the economic and business opportunities afforded by Pakistan's strategic location and the connectivity to the broader region.

House condemns Trump 'racist' tweets in extraordinary rebuke
Omar came to America as a refugee and soon became a United States citizen, the other three women were all born in the US. The president has been involved in an ongoing heated exchange with the so-called Squad , consisting of New York Rep.

The cricketer-turned-politician arrived here on Saturday afternoon aboard a commercial Qatar Airways flight and is staying at the official residence of the Pakistani Ambassador to the US, Asad Majeed Khan.

The US businessmen appreciated improved security environment in Pakistan and identified areas of interest with regard to investment in key sectors including energy and tourism. Indeed, in an email to Fair and Hussain Haqqani, a former Pakistan ambassador to the USA and also a critic of the PakMil establishment, an NDU official acknowledged during a 2015 episode that the Pakistani military attache's office in Washington DC has protested "certain points of view", on Pakistan, but the NDU leadership had "both weathered the protests and stood with its people". Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will call on him on Tuesday. And that is in line with the incremental softening in this administration's posture on Pakistan from the stark hostility of the president's tweets and remarks of most of 2018, all geared towards exiting Afghanistan, ending the country's longest war in history.

His other engagements include a meeting of Pakistani-Americans investors, media interviews, addressing the US-Pakistani Business Council and a dinner meeting with selected leaders of America's corporate sector.

Pakistani PM's visit will create stable partnership between the two countries and strengthen ties, Trump administration reported.
