Trump-Sharif meet in Riyadh likely
NEW DELHI, May 20: Saudi Arabia maybe backing Islamabad's request for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif meeting with US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of a summit tomorrow in Riyadh that some are touting as an 'Arab Nato' meet, Pakistani media reported.

"Diplomatic sources" told Dawn that on Saudi Arabia's urging the "Americans are trying to find space for a very brief one-on-one between Mr Sharif and Mr Trump". Sources told the Tribune that Sharif "will raise the issue of extremism, terrorism and human rights violations" in Kashmir with the US President.

Sharif is among 54 leaders scheduled to join Trump for the Arab Islamic American Summit being held on Sunday. He was invited by Saudi King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.

Significantly, this is the US President's first foreign visit since he assumed office in January and since what has come to be known as the now-overturned 'Muslim ban'.
