So, The U.S. State Department Apparently Has No Clue About PM Imran Khan's “Official” Visit To America

By Rameeza Ahmad | 10 Jul, 2019

The U.S State Department doesn’t know if PM Imran Khan is officially visiting the United States.

According to Dawn, in a briefing which was held by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, a Spokesperson for the Foreign Office, Dr. Mohammad Faisal, announced that Prime Minister Imran Khan would be visiting the United States on the invitation of President Donald Trump.

The transcription for the briefing by the Ministry Of Foreign Affairs was also made available on the ministry’s official website which also allegedly cited these claims.

The visit was said to be a way for leaders of both the countries to talk about bilateral relations which would benefit them both.

However, Morgan Ortagus, the Spokesperson for the United States State Department denied knowledge of Imran Khan’s impending official visit. In a video of her press briefing earlier, she said she did not know of Imran Khan’s official visit and had only seen the same reports as the reporters in the room.

However, she mentioned that she would contact the White House to confirm whether an official visit was planned since she currently has no knowledge about it.

After all of this confusion, people were wondering what was true and what wasn’t. A lot of people wondered whether Imran Khan’s visit was not official and felt a little disturbed by the idea that the news of a meeting being planned between both heads of state might be fake.


After the Spokesperson for the U.S. State Department denied her knowledge about the meeting scheduled between Imran Khan and Donald Trump, the Ministry Of Foreign Affairs immediately tried to do damage control and issued a tweet.

According to the tweet, the news would be made official during the appropriate time and should not be rushed. However, people did not buy this explanation and instead blamed the Ministry for not knowing when to make this information public in the first place.

They quoted the Ministry’s Spokespersons exact words regarding the meeting.

The entire thing is incredibly confusing. Was a meeting ever planned? Did Trump actually extend an invitation to Prime Minister Imran Khan? The details are currently murky but since the trip is planned in a few days, we’ll know soon enough.

What do you think is the truth? Let us know in the comments below.
