PM Imran to meet Trump hoping to mend fences, attract investment

 

(REUTERS): Prime Minister Imran Khan will travel to the United States on Sunday hoping the arrest of Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed and progress in the Afghan peace talks will help secure a favourable reception.

PM Imran is expected to try to mend fences and attract much-needed investment during his meeting with US President Donald Trump, scheduled to take place on July 22, in exchange for assurances of full cooperation in ending the war in Afghanistan and fighting militant threats.

Trump, a property developer turned reality TV star, and PM Imran, World Cup-winning captain of the Pakistan cricket team, both came to office after achieving fame away from politics and the personal chemistry between the two may be decisive.

“A lot will depend on the kind of mood that President Trump and indeed Prime Minister Imran Khan find themselves in,” said Farzana Sheikh, an associate fellow at the Royal Institute of International Affairs in London.

“Neither of them is known to be particularly predictable.”

Battling to stave off a balance of payments crisis and forced to seek a bailout from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Pakistan is badly in need of foreign investment but security is likely to be the main focus of the visit.

PM Imran will be accompanied by Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa.

Analysts believe he will play a key role in behind-the-scenes discussions where much of the serious business of the visit will take place, with the military looking to persuade Washington to restore aid and cooperation.

Last year, Trump cut off hundreds of millions of dollars in security assistance to Pakistan, accusing Islamabad of offering “nothing but lies and deceit” while giving safe haven to terrorists, a charge angrily rejected by Islamabad.

But Imran will believe the arrest on Wednesday of Hafiz Saeed, the alleged mastermind of a four-day militant attack on the Indian city of Mumbai in 2008, will send the right signals to Trump, who exuberantly welcomed the news on Twitter.

More than 160 people were killed in the four-day militant attacks. Saeed — who has a $10 million US bounty on his head — is designated a terrorist by the United States and the United Nations.

Trump said Saeed’s arrest “after a 10-year search”, was the result of pressure from his administration on Pakistan to get tougher on militants.

But Saeed has been in and out of Pakistan prisons for the last decade and even addressed public rallies.

As well as assurances that it is cracking down on militants, PM Imran is likely to stress Pakistan’s role in bringing the Taliban to the negotiating table with the United States.

Trump has made no secret of his desire to end US military involvement in Afghanistan and Pakistan’s cooperation will be essential to any deal to end the war and ensure the country does not become a base for militant groups like Islamic State.

“The United States, Russia and China know that without Pakistan’s co-operation, there can be no settlement in Afghanistan,” Sheikh said.

New Delhi has pushed the Financial Action Task Force, global money laundering and terror finance watchdog, to put Pakistan on a blacklist of countries that fail to meet international standards in stopping financial crime.

But it has had its own problems with the Trump administration over trade and is concerned about being shut out of the peace process in Afghanistan.

  17. The large back seat was also convenient for other purposes beyond sitting, as I would soon learn. We talked some; there was a silence as two strangers were trying to think of something worthwhile to say. I would learn later that this pregnant silence is when the seducer is about to make his move and find out if he will get lucky with his date tonight.Moving his seat back as far as it would go he unbuckled his pants and pushed them down exposing his cock and balls. I watched in the dim light fascinated because I had no idea what was going on. He rolled the foreskin of his dick back…

  18. That he could take care of me and give me his body when I wanted or needed it. The guy that could be my perfect ‘wife’ ; so to speak. I pushed further into him; the head of my cock trying to wedge itself in his asshole. I simply couldn’t do it; not without hurting him; there was no lube and his butt was a virgin. So instead; I grinded against him; hearing the popping sounds of my rock hard cock sliding between his slick warm crack. I was in a dream.The dream lasted for what seemed like forever. As soon as the both of us started dating, everyone was informed; including my group of friends….

Everything he did was that way, as he liked to be in control. His eyes followed her as she removed the skirt as she placed it on the chair and shyly covered herself a little playing the innocent girl.”Good girl,” he reaffirmed about the no underwear instructions he had given beforehand.She blushed.”Show me.”She moved her hands and again felt his eyes on her, devouring her nakedness and knowing she was affecting him.He leaned forward in the chair…

I pulled into the extended parking garage knowing I would not be charge if I left within an hour. And that there was usually privacy in the far back corner. I pulled into a spot and my little girl got out and said, “Daddy, I want you naked in this seat,” She pointed to where she was just seating. Quickly I slid towards her pulling my shorts down around my ankles. She was completely naked in a second. My little girl climbed on top of me lowering herself down on my hard cock. Her…

  21. I approached gingerly, moving myself between his spread legs, placing my hands on his thighs. “That’s it,” I heard him saying, encouraging me along, “Get in there.” The blanket admitted a little bit of light and I could see that I was facing his tree-trunk sized member which, implausibly, seemed even bigger up close. “Touch it,” I heard him saying, slightly muffled by the blanket. I took a deep breath. He’d put the porn back on and I could hear the loud exclamations of the pornstar as she enjoyed the man beneath her. I reached out tentatively and gasped as I wrapped my fingers…

She got up from her uncomfortable chair and stretched her feline body, her breasts strained against the fabric of her polyester blouse, she wiped a bead of sweat of her forehead despite the intense blizzard the air-conditioning was creating she always sweated profusely when she was nervous, and boy, was she nervous, a shiver ran through her curvy five foot ten frame and she placed her round big ass on the table.She had arranged to meet ghost, an old friend, the memories of their past encounters sent chills down her spine.Ghost had funded her education and had provided her with a steady…

An hour later he walks into the door. He says hello to me but I refuse to talk to him. I’m so angry at him for being late once again. I can tell he’s starting to get annoyed with my silence. He asks for a beer and a slam it down angrily on the table. All of a sudden he roughly grabs me and starts to spank me over his lap. ” I’m tired of your attitude. I’m going to teach you a lesson.” He then takes off my pants and panties…

One of her hands slipped into my hair, holding me in place as I sucked and flicked my tongue over her nipple.”Would you be one of those guys Justin?”I nodded as I started to nibble on her hard nipple, my hand squeezing her breast, my other hand stroking her other breast, my thumb rubbing over her nipple. She finally released my head and got from my lap, her nipple slipping out of my mouth with an audible pop. Without a word she walked to the kitchen with her glass,…

And then we were through a pair of doors and were assaulted by the music. The entire factory floor was packed with people. Blacklights flooded the club; everything glowed bright blue or green or red. People were dancing, wearing glowstick bracelets that gave them an ethereal beauty in the dark club. Leah pulled me out onto the dance floor. I let the music flow through me, moving my body to the rhythm, pressing up against Leah….

  28. I often went there mid week, to meet one nice guy, Mike who loved to fuck my ass, and although he was a bit older than me was good for 3 or 4 cum loads in a session, and each load was a good load too, his cock wasn’t to big, but the loved using toys or fisting my ass as well, and didn’t mind sharing me with other guys too, so all up my nights with him turned out pretty rewarding.Mike though didn’t finish work until 9pm, so I would more often then not arrive at the club around 5 pm, when a fair few guys dropped in after work before going home, often by the time Mike arrived I had been…

I want it all.” Byron started talking shit.”Is…that…fucking…hard…enough…for…you…bitch?” Each word was accompanied by his hips jamming his dick hard inside her. “Take it all, slut. I am going to fuck your tits off, bitch!” Lauren and I burst out laughing. We had never heard such…

The desire for more took control of her body and mind. She wanted him so badly, and her body was begging for the pleasure only Carl could give her. Sweating profusely, she managed to whisper audibly in between moans and heavy breathing. “Oh yeah! Oh god! Make me cum, baby! Oh! Make me cum hard!”Hearing this, Carl complied, spurred on by her need, her rush for freedom. His movements sped up, fingers delving and surfacing in…

Allowing Betsy plenty of time to arouse herself, I gently take her cheek in my hand looking deeply into her eyes as I lower my lips. Betsy, aroused, moans softly as my tongue darts forward, ” Please No. No. NO! I made a mistake John.” I sense reluctance as my arms reach behind the quivering Betsy and I draw her near as my tongue slips between her lips. As she is softly moaning my tongue explores the warm and inviting oral cavity. Her white blouse is soaked as…

She was still on edge from her earlier impromptu session with Trevor and her muscles gripped eagerly at the new visitor as he sank inside her warmth. She arched her back and lifted her hips to meet him as their groins met, biting her lip with an impish grin as Brandon loomed over her, supporting himself on his arms and taking a moment to adjust to the feeling. When he was ready he returned the smile then began to…

They celebrated his return to school with a nice dinner, and too much alcohol. Debra fell asleep on the couch, resting her head on Tracey’s shoulder. Tracey, surprised at the intimate contact, put…

Papa had also desired Sophie to request Fred to join them.This, of course, at once excited a desire on my part to join dear Mamma. So during…

Terrified and still too stunned to speak, she whimpers. The hand over her mouth retreats, slapping her hard on the ass, and then commanded, ” Now, just do as I say and everything will be fine.
