According to the White House, the First Lady had undergone a procedure known as an "embolization procedure", after seeking treatment at a hospital for her kidney condition.

The First Lady's communication director released a more detailed statement this week, confirming "the procedure was successful and there were no complications".

She said, however, the first lady would likely remain at Walter Reed for "the duration of the week" to recover.

He called Nawaz Sharif a "modern-day Mir Jafar, who collaborated with the British to enslave his nation for personal gains". We have always cooperated with India over information sharing pertaining to all incidents of terrorism", Nisar added.

President Donald Trump headed to Walter Reed, in Bethesda, Maryland, on Monday afternoon to visit his wife.

Vice President Mike Pence, however, described the procedure as "long-planned" as he opened a speech in Washington on Monday night. Successful procedure, she is in good spirits.

Mrs. Trump joined her husband last month to host the prime minister of Japan for a two-day summit at the Trumps' Florida estate, and the Trumps hosted the president of France at the White House on a three-day state visit, including a lavish state dinner.

"Our wonderful first lady are doing very well. Thank you to all of the well-wishers!" he wrote in a tweet.

In embolization, doctors insert a catheter as part of a procedure to purposely block a blood vessel and cut off the blood supply to the affected area.
