Pakistan's Khan calls for more 'trustworthy' ties with Washington

He stressed the need for revitalisation of diplomatic ties between the two countries and transforming the relationship for each other's benefit.

Imran Khan expressed concerns over the alarming human rights situation in Indian-occupied Kashmir.

Mr Khan said: "I am glad that people in the United States have ultimately started acknowledging significance of political solution as conflict and use of force can add to the damages instead of breeding a sustainable solution to the crisis".

Earlier, in his victory speech, Khan had also offered to build good ties with India.

Javed also confirmed that three former Indian cricketers Kapil Dev, Novjot Singh Sidhu and Sunil Gavaskar had been invited to the oath-taking ceremony.
