PM spends 'good time with Trump' in Suadi Summit

However, despite having no bilateral meeting scheduled, the President Trump had a brief encounter with Sharif and exchanged pleasantries.

While the Opposition believes that Sharif will have to step down in the wake of the lawyers' movement, National Assembly Speaker Ayaz Sadiq has said Sharif will not resign at any cost and he will remain the prime minister until May 31, 2018.

US president Donald Trump on Sunday acknowledged India as "victim of terrorism" during Arab-Islamic-US Summit at Riyadh.

The prime minister appreciated the leadership of President Trump to make this Summit as his first overseas engagement.

The prime minister said that as the Western world was uniting against terrorism, the Muslim world should also be on the same page to tackle this threat.

The diplomatic meet between Sharif and Trump did not take place even as the Saudi Arabia was strongly backing the idea.

Trump addressed the summit yesterday which was attended by leaders from 55 countries, including Sharif. He prayed for peace in the Muslim world as well as prosperity and development of Pakistan.

In a joint declaration issued by the two bar associations, they said that following the Supreme Court's order on the Panama Papers case, the Prime Minister should no longer hold the position and resign within seven days, The Dawn reported. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has taken on Nawaz Sharif for letting Pakistan and other Muslim communities down with his ineffective presence at the global forum.

After departing Islamabad, the premier arrived along with his delegation, including foreign affairs' adviser Sartaj Aziz and lawyer Akram Sheikh.
