Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan will seek US President Donald Trumps help to resolve the longstanding Kashmir issue with India when he meets the American leader next week in Washington, officials said.

Senior officials at the Foreign Ministry told The Nation newspaper on Sunday that the agenda was being worked out for the July 22 meeting at the White House.

"The Prime Minister will definitely take up the Kashmir issue with the US President and seek his help for the resolution of the dispute with India," said one official.

Another official said that Pakistan will brief the US about Islamabad's efforts for regional peace.

"The ongoing support to the US talks with the Afghan Taliban will be discussed. Pakistan is ready to go further for Afghan peace and stability," he said, adding that Islamabad had also been urging talks with New Delhi and Khan will provide details of the country's efforts so far to President Trump.

This will be Khan's maiden visit to the US since assuming power following the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's victory in the 2018 general elections.
