Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan is likely to meet US President Donald Trump in New York on September 23 on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, according to a media report.

Pakistani daily Dawn quoting diplomatic sources said this could be the first of the two meetings Prime Minister Khan is expected to have with President Trump during the UNGA session.

The Khan-Trump meeting will take place a day after Trump along with Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address more than 50,000 Indian-Americans at the "Howdy Modi!" mega event in Houston.

Khan is expected to be in New York on Sunday evening, when Trump will be addressing the joint rally with Modi.

Both Khan and Modi are scheduled to address the UN General Assembly on September 27.

Khan has vowed to raise the Kashmir issue at the UNGA session.

In Islamabad, the Foreign Office on Friday said Pakistan has taken several measures to keep a sustained focus on the situation in Kashmir.

The Foreign Office in a statement said Pakistan will exercise all options available to ensure that the UN Human Rights Council actions "meaningfully impact on the ground situation in Kashmir."
