As per the new media reports, India's high commissioner said that he is planning to call Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader, Imran Khan.

"(My party) wants to build a relationship with United States based on trust and mutual respect and hence our government will engage with U.S.to make this relationship more balanced and trustworthy", Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party said in a statement late on Wednesday, attributing comments to Khan.

Indian High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria on Friday called on Pakistan's prime minister-in-waiting Imran Khan and discussed bilateral relations even as he voiced the Indian leadership's concerns over terrorism and cross-border infiltration.

Hoover felicitated Khan over his party's victory in the July 25 general election.

Khan on July 25 had cast his vote at a polling station of NA-53 (Islamabad) where he defeated former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.

After the withdrawal of its notice, the ECP issued a victory notification for the PTI chief for NA-53, which had been withheld due to this case.
