US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called on Prime Minister Imran Khan at Pakistan House in Washington DC on Tuesday, a day after the premier met President Donald Trump at the White House.
The US State Department tweeted a video about the Pompeo-Imran meeting.
PM Imran is on a three-day official visit to the United States in a bid to reset the strained ties between the two countries.
Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Foreign Secretary Sohail Mehmood and Pakistani envoy Asad Majeed Khan were present during the meeting.
US Senator Lindsey Graham also had met the prime minister on Monday and acknowledged that high-level engagement between Islamabad and Washington is beneficial for both the countries.
In 2018, Pompeo had paid a maiden visit to Pakistan after assuming charge of US high-powered post and met Premier Imran and other top civilian and military leadership.
