Sri Lanka, July 23 -- Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan is holding his first face-to-face talks with US President Donald Trump during a trip to Washington DC.

The meeting is part of a push to mend relations, which have been strained by the Afghan conflict.

At the White House meeting on Monday, President Trump also offered to mediate the Indian-Pakistani conflict in Kashmir.

He said that he was making the offer after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi requested that he "mediate or arbitrate" the 70-year old territory dispute between the two nations.
