Starting his address to the nation by thanking almighty Allah, he said, “I m fortunate that God gave me everything-fame, wealth, everything. I don t need anything today, he gave me everything for which I am very thankful.” He said Pakistan is only 5 years older than me, I m from the first generation of country to be born after independence.
He said that as a child, he remember South Korea had come to Pakistan to learn how did we progress, Malaysian princes used to study with me in school and Middle East used to come to our universities. “I ve seen all this sinking, seen my country getting insulted,” he said.
The Prime Minister said, “We are crawling on the ground like ants. I have always said that I will neither bow down to anyone nor I will allow anyone to bow down and this has been my position for 25 years.”
He said: “When I came to power, I decided that Pakistan’s foreign policy would be free and for Pakistanis and its purpose was not to support anyone.” Imran Khan went on to say that politicians in US are his friends while he spent his early life in UK.
He said former president Pervez Musharraf had given a briefing to all the politicians including me and we were told if we don t back US, they will turn on us like a wounded bear. During 9/11, we said that if there s a terror incident in the US, we should help them but that wasn t our war to fight
PM Imran further said that in the 1980s, the entire jihad was fought in the tribal areas and we were told that there was a foreign occupation in Afghanistan for which we wanted to save them, adding that after losing the war, the US imposed sanctions on us.
“People said that we are US s collaborators, so many Pakistanis sacrificed their lives, did anyone thank us for that,” he asked adding that so many people died in drone attacks, 80 people died after attack in a madrasa.
