WASHINGTON: Prime Minister Imran Khan was gifted a cricket bat by US President Donald Trump along with the picture of President Eisenhower – the only US President who had watched a Test match in Pakistan.
President Trump said that it is a great honour to have a “very popular, a great athlete, one of the greatest, the prime minister of Pakistan.”
Underscoring PM Imran’s leadership, the US president said that “a lot of things are happening for the US, and I think a lot of great things are going to be happening for Pakistan too, under your leadership. I really feel that”.
The world cup winning captain on Sunday arrived in Washington on his three-day visit to the US on the invitation of President Trump.
The premier was accompanied by Adviser to PM on Commerce, Abdul Razzak Dawood, Special Assistant on Overseas, Zulfi Bukhari, and Chief of the Army Staff, General Qamar Javed Bajwa, while Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi was already in Washington as part of the entourage.
