Najam in The Hill on Trump-Khan Meeting

Adil Najam, Dean of the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, published a recent Op-Ed on the upcoming meeting between Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan and United States President Donald Trump as well as the state of U.S.-Pakistan relations.

Najam’s Op-Ed, entitled “Trump and Pakistan’s Khan Are A Lot Alike — But Can They Master The Art Of Any Deals?” was published in The Hill on July 21, 2019.

From the text of the article:

When President Donald Trump meets Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan at the White House Monday, the real focus will be the personal chemistry between the two leaders.

U.S.-Pakistan relations are what they are: Not good. This meeting could make them better but not by much, and certainly not fast. That, nearly in its entirety, will depend on whether these two hit it off at a personal level — or not.

Of course, this would be true for any such meeting between any two leaders. But it is much more true in this case because of who these two men are. To state it most simply, it is not just comedian Trevor Noah but also many serious analysts who believe Imran Khan is “Pakistan’s Mr. Trump.”

Adil Najam is the inaugural dean of the Pardee School and was a former Vice Chancellor of the Lahore University of Management Sciences in Lahore Pakistan. Learn more about him here.
