A day after ‘Howdy, Modi’, Imran Khan likely to meet Donald Trump in New York on the side-lines of UNGA

Imran Khan is expected to reach New York on Sunday evening, the day when the US President, Donald Trump is set to join India's Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, at the ‘Howdy, Modi!’ mega-event in Houston.

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan is expected to meet US President Donald Trump in New York on September 23, hours after he arrives in the city for the 74th session of the UN General Assembly, diplomatic sources said on Friday.

According to sources, this meeting could be the first of the two meetings Imran Khan is expected to have with the US President on the sidelines of the UN session. Notably, Imran Khan is expected to reach New York on Sunday evening, the day when the US President, Donald Trump is set to join India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi, at the ‘Howdy, Modi’ mega-event in Houston, where Modi will address a meeting of 50,000-strong Indian diaspora.

Both Narendra Modi and Imran Khan are scheduled to address the UN General Assembly on September 27.

Imran Khan, who has been recently obsessing over Kashmir, especially after India went ahead with its decision to abrogate Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir has vowed to raise the Kashmir issue at the UNGA session.

Despite being snubbed time and again by almost all countries globally, Imran Khan refuses to back down on the issue. Such is the situation now, that the self-acclaimed ‘ambassador of Kashmir’ is gradually turning himself into an object of ridicule. Today in another jolt, Pakistan failed to secure the support of minimum 16 nations to move a resolution on Kashmir in the 47-member UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC).

September 19 (Thursday) was the last day for bringing such an initiative during the September 9th to 27th UNHRC session and Pakistan was unsuccessful in filing a request after it failed to garner the minimum support.

Despite being unsuccessful in getting support in UNHRC for any of its moves so far, Imran Khan is still considering to raise the Kashmir issue once again in the upcoming UN session.

The Foreign Office in a statement said Pakistan will exercise all options available to ensure that the UN Human Rights Council actions “meaningfully impact on the ground situation in Kashmir.”

Meanwhile, India’s Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale on Thursday said the focus of Prime Minister Modi’s week-long visit to the US from Saturday will not be on terrorism, but on highlighting India’s achievements and its global role.
