Khan's party said the former cricketer also discussed Afghanistan with the US envoy, stressing that a political solution was needed rather than more fighting.

"The Indian High Commissioner briefed the PTI leadership on India's concerns about terrorism and cross-border infiltration", the Indian High Commission here said in a tweet.

Talking to U.S. acting Ambassador to Pakistan John F. Hoover who called on him at his Banigala residence on Wednesday, the prime minister-in-waiting said Pakistan and the USA had witnessed many ups and downs in their relationship, which were the outcome of trust deficit between the two countries.

"India is confident that relations with Pakistan will take a turn for the positive".

The US Ambassador congratulated Imran Khan over the victory of his party in elections 2018.

A four-member bench headed by the chief election commissioner Muhammad Raza Khan heard the case against Khan, the Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) after the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) took notice of the photos of him stamping the ballot paper in full public glare in the NA-53 Islamabad constituency.

In addition to disrupting air traffic control, the incident also caused alarm among locals, many of whom recorded the incident. Authorities say the man went through various background checks to get clearance to be in the secured area.

The Indian envoy said that after Modi's telephone call to Khan, there was a new optimism in India that relations would move forward in the right direction, the Express Tribune reported.

"I hope that the SAARC leaders' conference will be held in Islamabad soon", Khan said.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf spokesperson Naeem-ul-Haque on Wednesday said Imran Khan will reside at the Punjab House chief Minister annexe after taking oath as the prime minister.

Javed also confirmed that three former Indian cricketers Kapil Dev, Novjot Singh Sidhu and Sunil Gavaskar had been invited to the oath-taking ceremony.

In the July 25 elections, the PTI emerged as the single largest party by securing 116 out of 272 general seats but fell short of a simple majority in the National Assembly.

The PTI on Monday formally announced Khan as the new Pakistan prime ministerial candidate. John Hoover said that the United States wants to strengthen the relationship with Pakistan.
