DAVOS-KLOSTERS: Prime Minister Imran Khan has met United States President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
During a formal meeting with the prime minister, Donald Trump said Imran Khan is his friend and he is happy to meet him again. This is the third meeting between the two leaders since Imran Khan visited Washington last year.
Donald Trump again offered to play a role regarding Kashmir issue, saying he have been closely monitoring the situation in occupied Kashmir.

Speaking on the occasion, Prime Minister Imran Khan said Pakistan desires peace in the region and will continue playing a role for regional peace and stability. He said the Afghan issue will be discussed with the US President.
