Imran Khan desperate to blend ties with US
Islamabad, Pakistan: “As far as I’m concerned it’s over, it’s behind me. The Pakistan I want to lead must have good relationships with everyone, especially the United States,” he was quoted as saying.
“Our relationship with the US has been as of a master-servant relationship, or a master-slave relationship, and we’ve been used like a hired gun. But for that I blame my own governments more than the US,” he was quoted as saying.
Imran Khan was removed from office through a vote of no-confidence by the then-opposition on April 9, after which he became the first Pakistan PM to be removed through the move. After that, he accused PM Shehbaz Sharif and the US for his ouster, however, both of them denied the claims, reported Dawn.
Earlier, on Thursday, PTI resumed its march to the capital after the protest procession was interrupted last week, following an assassination bid on the party leader Imran Khan.
Aside from the call for early elections, another bone of contention between the coalition government and Imran Khan’s PTI is said to be the appointment of the new Army chief.
