US government denies involvement in no-trust motion against PM
Published1 year ago
The US government categorically rejected any kind of involvement in the no-trust motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan, saying the allegations of US involvement are baseless.
The US government reacted strongly as Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday brandished a letter during a power show at D-chowk saying that it contains evidence of a foreign plot hatched against him and the Opposition’s no-trust motion is also a part of this foreign conspiracy to topple his government.
On Wednesday, the premier’s gist of the “threat letter” was also shared with senior journalists. Meanwhile, PTI leader Faisal Vawda had claimed that a “plot is being hatched to assassinate Prime Minister Imran Khan.”
Responding to a question asked by Geo News regarding the ‘threat letter,’ the US State Department categorically rejected any kind of involvement in the no-confidence motion against PM Imran Khan.
“Allegations of US involvement in the no-trust motion and ‘threat letter’ to PM Imran Khan are baseless,” said the State Department.
The US government is monitoring the political situation of Pakistan, however and supports the rule of law in Pakistan, the State Department said.
Regarding the question of a no-trust motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan, the US State Department said that they respect the constitutional process in Pakistan.
PM Imran Khan sees ‘foreign hand’ behind efforts to topple his government
The premier, during what PTI labelled as one of its “biggest” rallies in its history at the Parade Ground in Islamabad, flashed a letter before the public, saying that he has “written evidence” that “money has been pouring in from abroad,” while “some of our people are being used to topple the government.”
He had said that for months, “plotting and planning is being carried out to influence the foreign policy of Pakistan from outside.”
‘Threat letter’: A diplomat’s view
Former high commissioner to India Abdul Basit said that state officials issuing such threats to diplomats is completely unheard of.
“Incidents where state officials tell diplomats that they would sever ties if a country’s government is not sent packing has never been heard before,” he said.
