The meeting took place on the sidelines of first Arab-Islamic-American Summit in which USA president Donald Trump also participated.

After departing Islamabad in the morning, Sharif arrived along with his delegation, which comprises several government officials and media persons, including Foreign Affairs' adviser Sartaj Aziz and lawyer Akram Sheikh. The prime minister will leave for home on Tuesday.
