US not interfering in Pakistan's internal politics: State Department

WASHINGTON: The United States has said that it is not engaged in any discussions that could be regarded as interference in Pakistan’s internal politics.

“We are in no way involved in the process of discussion between the parties. Any suggestion to the contrary is completely false”, the US State Department deputy spokesperson Marie Harf said in a daily briefing in Washington on Friday.

The State Department said that the US thinks there needs to be a political dialogue, in the face of marches by Opposition parties in Islamabad, and it also favors peaceful expression of view.

“We are monitoring the demonstration. Obviously, we think there should be a space in Pakistan for peaceful expression of view”, Harf said.

Harf said that her country is watching the developments and reiterated opposition to any extra-constitutional steps.

“But we do think that there needs to be peaceful dialogue and no attempt to change Pakistan’s government through extra-constitutional attempts,” she said.

The spokesperson noted that “Nawaz Sharif is prime minister” and that the US will keep working with him as it works with a number of people in Pakistan.
