Both leaders are among around two dozen heads of governments and states who are gathering in Saudi Arabia on May 21 for US-Arab Islamic summit.

Foreign Office officials confirmed to The Express Tribune that efforts were underway to arrange a maiden bilateral meeting between Trump and Nawaz at the sidelines of the summit.
