US President Donald Trump shakes hands with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan (L) during a meeting in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, DC, on July 22, 2019.

Earlier this week, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan made his first visit to Washington since he became prime minister. He met with President Trump at the White House and held a series of other high-level meetings with U.S. officials and corporate leaders, among other activities.

The latest edition of The AfPak File reviews and assesses Khan’s visit. What are the main takeaways? Did Washington and Islamabad get what they wanted? And what’s next for the U.S.-Pakistan relationship?

These questions and more were addressed by Adil Najam, dean of the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University; Mehr Tarar, a writer based in Lahore; Daud Khattak, senior editor of Radio Mashaal for Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty; and Michael Kugelman, deputy director of the Asia Program and senior associate for South Asia at the Wilson Center.

Muhammad Tahir, media manager for Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty in Washington, DC, moderated the discussion.
