During their meeting on the sidelines of Davos 2020, Trump told PM Imran, whom he referred to as ‘my friend’, that he would speak to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi about the ongoing Kashmir issue. He said, ‘What’s going on between Pakistan and India … if we can help, we certainly will be willing to. We have been watching it very closely and it’s an honour to be here with my friend’.
The occasion marks the third time the two world leaders have met since the premier assumed office in July 2018.
PM Imran Khan left for Davos early on Tuesday to attend the annual meeting. He is accompanied by Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Adviser on Commerce Abdul Razaq Dawood, Special Assistant on National Security Mooed Yusuf and Special Assistant on Overseas Pakistanis Zulfiqar Abbas Bukhari, while Adviser on Finance Dr Abdul Hafeez Sheikh and Ambassador at large for Investments Ali Jehangir Siddiqui will join the delegation in Davos.
The prime minister will deliver a keynote address at the WEF special session and also interact with corporate leaders at the Pakistan Strategy Dialogue.
