The US officials snubbed Pakistan PM 

Pakistan PM Imran Khan will meet US President Donald Trump today (22nd July). Khan’s major focus will be mending the relationship with the biggest military force in the world. Indeed, this will be his maiden visit to the US as a Prime Minister and would hope to seek help from his NATO ally.

Imran traveled by a commercial airline, Qatar Airways, instead of a private jet to reduce expenses. Interestingly, Pak PM was not welcomed by any US officials as he arrived at Dulles Airport this weekend. People in social media have called this incident as an affront act and has said that Khan has been snubbed by the US administration.

The US had previously hanged most of its military aid to its NATO ally Pakistan. The aid of worth $ 300 million was suspended by Trump’s administration after Pakistan was accused of not doing enough to fight terrorism in its country. Moreover, the Financial Action Task Force (FATA) had also dropped sanctions on Pakistan as it has accused the nation of funding terrorists in its country.
