Trust deficit exists in Pak-US relations, Imran tells US delegation


The PTI's parliamentary committee on Monday officially named party chairman Khan as their parliamentary leader and nominee for the next prime minister of Pakistan.

Pakistan's Prime Minister-in-waiting Imran Khan has said his government will build a more "balanced and trustworthy" relationship with the U.S., asserting that the trust deficit between the two countries has resulted in many ups and downs in the bilateral ties.

HC congratulated @ImranKhanPTI on his electoral success, discussed range of issues, prospects of India-Pak relationship.

The report stated that, Khan was first summoned on July 18, but the case was pushed after he filed an application to the accountability body seeking more time citing his unavailability due to campaigning for the general elections.

In a major relief to Imran Khan, the election commission today declared him the victor from four parliamentary constituencies, including Lahore, clearing the way for his swearing in as Pakistan's new Prime Minister.

Bisaria, too, hoped that a new chapter in the Pakistan-India relations would soon begin. He hoped that the next SAARC Summit will be hosted in Islamabad.

Indian HC Basariya also presented a cricket bat, signed by the Indian team to the former Pakistani legend.

Pakistan went to polls on 25 July and the PTI had emerged as the single largest party with 116 seats after the Election Commission of Pakistan released results for 270 of 272 National Assembly constituencies.

Shortly after Modi's conversation with Khan on phone, speculations were rife that the latter would invite the Indian PM for his swearing-in.

The party will have to seek formal support from smaller parties or independents to have Khan elected prime minister. Local media also said that from India, cricketers Kapil Dev, Sunil Gavaskar and Navjot Singh Sidhu had been invited for the oath-taking ceremony. John Hoover said that the U.S. wants to strengthen the relationship with Pakistan.

The US envoy expressed willingness to improve relations between Pakistan and the United States.
