I am not anti-American but wants mutual respect-based ties with US: PM Imran Khan

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that he is not anti-American and he wants cordial relations with all the Countries including the United States but these ties should be based on mutual respect, honour and dignity.


Responding to telephone calls by Pakistanis on Monday, the prime minister said that the elections have been announced on the demand of the opposition parties.

The prime minister said that the opposition parties had been criticizing the performance of the government over the last three and a half years and now the question is why have they gone to the Supreme Court of Pakistan when their demand has been accepted and the assembly dissolved.

Imran Khan said that the opposition parties want the government only to abolish the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and their corruption cases. He said that they want to manage polls by making changes at different levels including the bureaucracy.

Responding to a query, the prime minister said that Pakistan cannot progress unless such people come to the Parliament who think of the Country. He said that party tickets for the elections will be awarded after careful consideration and that he will personally interview the candidates. He said that the politics has ended of those who defected from the party.

Answering a caller, Imran Khan said that he will join the protest demonstration being organized outside the Red Zone of Islamabad on Monday night to expose turncoats, who change their loyalties for the sake of money, and foreign conspiracy against his government.
