Want same dignified relationship for Pakistan that US has with India: Imran Khan


Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has express the urge to have a dignified relationship with US similar to the one US shares with India. Khan stated that India has a “very dignified” relationship with the US.  

“I basically want a dignified relationship with the US like India. India has a very dignified relationship with the US,” former cricketer said.

The recent remarks come in the wake of Khan’s claims that the US had conspired to remove him as prime minister a few months ago. Citing India’s decision to import Russian oil despite the ongoing war, Khan said that India says “no” to the US and takes priority for its people. He said that Pakistan wants to be partners with the US but there must be occasions where they “should be allowed to say no.”

“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” said Khan.  

While referring to the alleged conspiracy regarding his ouster, Khan said it would not have been possible until and unless people in the Country backed US. “As far as I’m concerned, its over, its behind me. But, whatever the US desires could not have happened without people here who actively took part in the conspiracy to get rid of me,” Imran Khan further added.

Not to mention, Imran Khan was ousted from his office with a vote of no-confidence motion. economictimes
