PM Visit to United States 'Official or Unofficial'
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif left London on Tuesday for the United States on a four-day offcial visit, Radio Pakistan reported.
The prime minister is set to hold dialogue on a number of issues of bilateral interests with US President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and other US cabinet members.
During the meetings, the two countries are expected to talk on the current state of Pak-US relations and search for areas for further cooperation meant to expand and enrich the partnership of the two countries.
Some Pakistani analyst have debated the tour to be unofficial, sources reveal. They said that United States have denied the official status of the visit with Obama to offer PM only 30 minutes from his time. They establish that the visit is uncalled for and futile as regards building relations between the countries.
Nonetheless, PM Nawaz is also expected to meet members of the US Senate, House of Representatives and senior US Government’s officials.
He will also attend a corporate event to be organised by US-Pakistan Business Council in Washington DC and will also speak at the United States Institute of peace.
Maryam Nawaz, daughter of the prime minister, has also accompanied the premiere for the US visit on invitation from the US first lady Michelle Obama.
Maryam will meet Michelle on Thursday to discuss women’s empowerment and educational reforms in Pakistan.
