The news of Fatem meeting Trump's team was confirmed by Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States Jalil Abbas Jilani.
'Besides meeting members of the transition team, Mr Fatemi will meet officials of the outgoing Obama administration' Jalil Abbas Jilani said.
Mr Fatemi, who is coming on a two-week official visit, is also expected to meet some members of this team and in Washington, “he will also meet new US lawmakers elected last month,” Mr Jilani told a news briefing at the embassy.
