The premier arrived in London on Saturday en route to NY to participate in the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) commencing from September 18.

The Prime Minister will hold bilateral meetings with a number of world leaders and the secretary general of the United Nations, the foreign office announced. Some of those meetings are being planned.

The prime minister is scheduled to address the UNGA on Thursday.

"Pakistan and US need to collaborate to pursue common objectives and issues of mutual interest", Abbasi told US Ambassador David Hale during a meeting.

"We can no longer be silent about Pakistan's safe havens for terrorist organizations", he said warning that vital aid could be cut.

The new policy, which was seen here as humiliating, disrespectful to Pakistani sacrifices in the fight against terrorism, and indifferent to Islamabad's security concerns, prompted a re-assessment of ties at the highest level. "We are here to give our point of view logically and with evidence".

Abbasi and Hale agreed that relations between the two countries should be strengthened through multi-faceted engagement.

Abbasi recently met USA ambassador to Pakistan David Hale.

Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar and Speaker National Assembly Ayaz Sadiq will also attend the meeting with the ousted prime minister.

In an another important engagement ahead of his most important overseas trip since assuming office last month, Mr Abbasi met Afghan Ambassador Dr Omar Zakhilwal.

"Pakistan has received the Memorial (written pleadings) from the International Court of Justice, submitted by the Government of India" in Jadhav's case, the Pakistan Foreign Office said in a statement.
