Imran Khan praises India’s foreign policy
PAKISTAN: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan heaped praise on the Indian Government and said India’s foreign policy is independent and for the betterment of its people.
In a video, Pakistan PM Imran Khan could be heard saying, “Main aaj Hindustan ko daad deta hun (Today, I salute India). It has always maintained an independent foreign policy.”
“India is a member of Quad alliance, with the United States as one of its members. But India still calls itself neutral. India is importing oil from Russia, which is facing sanctions. This is because India’s foreign policy is for its people,” Imran Khan said.
In his address to a public rally in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, Imran Khan told his supporters that his foreign policy would also favour the people of Pakistan.
“I haven’t bowed before anyone and will not let my nation bow either,” said Khan, who is rallying public support ahead of a No-Confidence vote against him in Parliament.
Meanwhile, Pakistan’s National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser has called a session of the National Assembly for March 25 at 11 am, at the request of opposition parties who filed a No-Confidence Motion(NCM) against Prime Minister Imran Khan on March 8.
The assembly Speaker’s decision to call the session came a day after the joint opposition slammed the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government for allegedly attempting to postpone the crucial session under the guise of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) meeting in Islamabad on March 22-23. The Opposition Leader and PPP Chief Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari had even threatened to disrupt the session by staging a sit-in in front of the assembly.
He warned that if the National Assembly Speaker did not allow the No-Confidence Motion to be tabled on Monday, his party and the other opposition parties would stage a sit-in in front of the National Assembly. -India today
