Pak Says, Imran Khan’s Party Has Apologized to the US For ‘Foreign Conspiracy’ Allegations
ISLAMABAD, (ANI) – In a fresh revelation, Pakistan Defense Minister Khawaja Asif said that former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s party has now apologized to the US against whom it had leveled allegations of planning to conspire to throw the cricketer-turned-politician out of power.
He said that the government has procured all the evidence that the party apologized to the Assistant Secretary for South and Central Asian Affairs Donald Lu for leveling foreign conspiracy allegations against him.
Continuing further, he said that while Khan was chanting slogans against the US during his public gatherings, he is now “apologizing for his mistakes”. Asif also said that the PTI chairman has sent a message to the US where he desired his wishes to “fix things and his relationship with the superpower”.
He also responded over the leaked audio of former first lady and Imran Khan’s wife Bushra Bibi. Notably, in the leaked audio, she could be heard instructing PTI’s Dr Arsalan Khalid to run traitor trends on social media. Over these reports, Asif said that the PTI can file a petition in the court to get the leaked audio verified through forensics from a third party, as per the media portal.
On the “contradictory remarks” by Imran Khan regarding the foreign conspiracy, Asif said, “In the past, we too criticized the institutions but never leveled allegations.” He went on to say that till the time Khan was in power, he liked all these things which he has been commenting against.
Earlier, while addressing a rally on June 6, Imran Khan had called for the sacking of Donald Lu.
Imran Khan’s anti-American rhetoric and his accusations against the US for conspiring to oust him from power are also damaging the country’s relations with the west, according to an analysis.
Pakistan’s economy is already facing a huge challenge and the country often turns to Western-led multilateral financial institutions including the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.
