US Congress members Tahir Javed and US charge d affairs Paul Jones were also a part of the delegation.

Indian PM Narendra Modi has distorted the face of India in front of the whole world, said the premier, adding that he is not certain himself of the current face of India.

PM Khan said he was the biggest supporter of Pakistan-India talks; however, it is impossible until the situation is changed for the better in occupied Kashmir.

The premier also thanked the US senators for cooperation on the issue of Kashmir.
