Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Friday confirmed that Pompeo is scheduled to visit Pakistan on September 5.

Pompeo wished Khan success in the wake of his being sworn in as prime minister in Islamabad Saturday following victory in Jul 25's elections, said State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert. "They recalled their meeting in December 2015 and conversation from that time...and hoped to pick up the thread from there, ' a top source told The Indian Express". It has been learnt that the first class is not available in the flights being operated from Pakistan as this is offered by other worldwide airlines and its fare is said to be three-hundred times higher than the business/club class.

Qureshi also denied having said that Pakistan would win the Kulbhushan Jadhav's case in the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

Talking about his previous press conference, Qureshi said he had asked a question to his Indian counterpart "whether Pakistan and India have any other option other than holding talks to resolve the issues". "PTI attained the full support of coalition partners including Balochistan Awami Party (BAP), Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA), Pakistan Muslim League (PML) and Mutahidda Qaumi Movement (MQM)", he added. "Secretary Pompeo expressed his willingness to work with the new government towards a productive bilateral relationship", she said in the statement.

"The conversation between the secretary of state and the prime minister of Pakistan, you will be surprised to know.was a very good conversation".

When asked again by a reporter if the United States government continues to stand by the readout, she said: "We stand by our readout".

The foreign minister said Pakistan would not shy away from engaging with India despite the current impasse. Khan is one of those few elected leaders in Pakistan who is vociferously expressive of the price Pakistan has paid in myriad ways being part of the United States war on terror; loss of civilian lives as a outcome of operations of Pakistan army against militants in the area previously known as FATA, and USA drone attacks within and on Pakistan's borders; and because of the existence and functioning of militant groups within Pakistan that have wreaked havoc within and outside Pakistan. "He congratulated Imran Khan and told him that the U.S. wants a productive relationship with Pakistan".
