Prime Minister Imran Khan will use Pakistan Air force’s (PAF) aircraft instead of a PIA plane in his forthcoming visit to the US.
Federal Minister for Aviation Ghulam Sarwar Khan stated during a media talk in Karachi about this decision.
Previously, former prime ministers typically used PIA’s planes for their foreign excursions but PM Imran Khan said that this incurs losses to the national carrier.
Following the invitation of US President Donald Trump, Imran Khan will embark upon his visit to the country on 21 July. He will meet the President at the White House the following day on 22 to discuss a wide range of bilateral and regional matters.
PM Khan’s visit will mark the first summit-level engagement between the two countries since both leaders assumed their offices.
During his engagements in Washington, the PM will highlight his vision of “Naya Pakistan” and emphasize the importance of a broad, multi-faceted relationship with the US.
In the regional domain, he will outline the commitment Pakistan has to achieve peace and stability and the significance of constructive engagement to achieve a political solution in Afghanistan.
PM Imran Khan will further promote and highlight his policy of “peaceful neighbourhood” which includes resolving conflicts through dialogue and advocate the vision of peace prosperity in more than just South Asia.
