"Never did I feel more humiliated because here was a country which was supposed to be an ally and our ally did not trust us,” Imran Khan said in response to a question. 

Imran Khan, who is on a three-day official visit to the US, met President Donald Trump - the first face-to-face interaction between the two leaders - on Monday in the White House.

He described the meeting as very successful, which has reset the bilateral relationship.

Imran Khan said he wants to have a relationship of friendship with the US.

"For every Pakistani, it was humiliating. We never want to be in that same position again. We want to have a relationship of friendship. It doesn't matter, a friend can be rich and the other can be not so rich. So it's about a dignified relationship and that's what I hope,” he said.
