During the four day trip, she is expected to meet with Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, but details are being kept secret because of its sensitivity, an official told AFP news agency.

Ms. Yousafzai currently attends Oxford University in the United Kingdom, and leads her Malala Fund organization that promotes education for women and girls.
