Imran Khan to Visit Iran on First Foreign Visit as Pakistani PM

Pakistan’s prime minister-in-waiting Imran Khan is going to visit Tehran following his swearing-in ceremony, which is to be held later this month.

On his first trip abroad following his party’s victory in the July 25 general elections, Imran Khan will also visit Saudi Arabia.

Imran Khan, the leader of the PTI party, will take the oath of office on August 18, Pakistan’s Times of Islamabad reported.

Iran invited Imran Khan for a visit on August 4, when Iran’s Ambassador to Pakistan Mehdi Honardoost met him to offer congratulations on his victory.

Imran Khan was also invited to Saudi Arabia by King Salman in a phone conversation between the two earlier this month.

The cricketer-turned-politician has announced readiness to play a constructive role to mend fences between Iran and Saudi Arabia.

Tehran and Riyadh have been at loggerheads in recent years over a long list of differences, particularly their conflicting view on wars in Yemen and Syria, among others.
