Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) met with recently ousted Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan in Islamabad on her maiden visit to the country on Wednesday.
Omar, who is one of the few Muslim members of Congress, met the recently removed prime minister at his at his home in Islamabad’s Bani Gala district, where they discussed Islamophobia and related issues.
In a tweet shared by a member of Khan’s political party, PTI, Omar was quoted as expressing her “admiration” for the political leader and for “his position on and work against Islamophobia globally.”
The tweet added that Khan also “appreciated her courageous and principled position on issues.”
Their meeting comes just weeks after the leader, who was removed from his position via a no confidence motion, alleged that Pakistan’s opposition party’s no-confidence motion against him was the result of a “foreign conspiracy” because of his independent foreign policy.
Khan had previously alleged that Donald Lu, assistant secretary for the Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs at the Department of State, was involved in the “foreign conspiracy” to topple his government.
However, State Department principal deputy spokesperson Jalina Porter said at a press briefing in April that “there is absolutely no truth to the allegations.”
