Decks cleared for Imran Khan's oath on August 18
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.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan will take oath as the country's next prime minister on August 18, Geo News reported on Friday, quoting party spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry.
The PTI's parliamentary party members last week nominated Khan as the parliamentary leader and nominee for the premiership.
A four-member bench headed by the chief election commissioner Muhammad Raza Khan heard the case against Imran Khan, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf or PTI after the Election Commission of Pakistan took notice of the photos of him stamping the ballot paper in full public glare in the NA-53 Islamabad constituency.
Both the dignitaries discussed Pak-Iran relations and other matters of mutual interests.
The premier-in-waiting stressed the need to restart dialogue between the two countries on all outstanding issues including Kashmir.
Khan also hoped for India's participation in the SAARC summit, scheduled to be held in Islamabad.
