Osama bin Laden, shown here in 2001, in a video, lived in Pakistan when SEAL Team Six killed him.
“We believe that Dr. Afridi was wrongly imprisoned and have clearly communicated our position to Pakistan, Dr. Afridi is the case, both in public and in private,” said the official. “We continue to this question at the highest level in the talks with the Pakistani leadership.”
Although the State Department official said Pakistan has offered assurances Afridi is treated humanely and is in good health, a sit-down between Trump and Sharif is expected to take place in Riyadh, would offer in the next few days, a chance for Trump under pressure, face-to-face of his counterpart.

In this 5. May 2011 file photo, local residents and media are seen outside the house where Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was caught and killed in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
Afridi was hailed as a hero by U.S. officials, the vaccination manager in the operation, the procurement of DNA samples from bin Laden’s relatives and to the establishment of its presence in the residential complex. But officials, including then-CIA Director Leon Panetta, Afridi the role of the public was in front of the doctor and his family, from Pakistan, and he was quickly arrested.
In a 2012 exclusive interview from his prison cell, Afridi told Fox News that he was proud to have helped to get America to Bin Laden.
“I have a lot of respect and love for your people,” he said, adding that he was “proud of the work with” the CIA.
Afridi, the case was bogged down by the endless appeals and court delays in a court in Peshawar. While viewed as a hero in the United States, where he once lived, Afridi is seen by some in Pakistan as a traitor. The raid was seen as a violation of Pakistani sovereignty, although the 9/11 mastermind and Al Qaeda leader, the presence in Pakistan was not likely to be a mystery to many in power.
Sartaj Aziz, Advisor to Sharif on foreign Affairs, confirmed that Sharif will meet the President of Trump but declined to comment on the Afridi case, or negotiations between the States for his release.
However, a senior government official in Islamabad, speaking on condition of anonymity, could be an offer in the vicinity.
“For improving strained relations between Islamabad and Washington, it is the right time to solve the upcoming questions, including Dr. Afridi is not the case,” he said.
In may 2012, Afridi was sentenced to 33 years behind bars, under murky charges. Pakistan reports of officials first of all, he of high treason, was condemned. Then in 2013, his conviction was overturned, and he was commissioned instead, the murder of a patient, the reduced eight years earlier, and his prison sentence to 23 years.
Afridi filed an appeal after a new trial, but his lawyer Fox News in the year 2015, said that the case stalled when one of these processes was repeatedly interrupted.
While the United States provides Pakistan with more than $800 million in development assistance, the U. S is the largely Muslim nation, the cooperation in the war against terror.
