Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari would embark upon “first official visit” to the United States in the middle of this month, it is learnt.
Bilawal is visiting the US on the invitation of his counterpart Antony Blinken. Minster of State for Foreign Affairs Hina Rabbani Khar may also be a part of the delegation.
Last week, Blinken had felicitated Bilawal over the phone upon assuming office, expressing his commitment to boost bilateral relations.
Bilawal is expected to participate in the “Global Food Security” meeting on May 18 and virtually attend the second world COVID conference on May 12.
It would be “first high-level interaction between the two countries” amid the PTI’s anti-American narrative. Former prime minister Imran Khan has blamed Washington for toppling his government. The US has denied the allegations.
