In 2018, during an interview with Chris Wallace on FOX News, President Trump accused Pakistan of not providing adequate support in the War on Terror despite the US sending billions of dollars in aid to the Islamic country.
This prompted a swift response from Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan who took to social media to set the record straight.
Pakistani officials denied any involvement in supporting Afghan Taliban insurgents or aiding former al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden, who had been living a short distance from a military compound for years in Abbottabad.
In May 2021, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan was taken into custody outside the High Court in Islamabad.
Reports state that paramilitary forces surrounded him upon his entrance to court before arresting him.
According to police, five officers were injured and 43 protesters were arrested during the incident.
Khan had been elected prime minister in 2018 but lost his parliamentary majority amid disputes with the military and subsequently failed a confidence vote in April of this year.
Despite these allegations, he has denied any wrongdoings.
Imran Khan was jailed this week for three years and will be ineligible to run in the upcoming election.
In May of this year, President Imran Khan of Pakistan was arrested following the publication of diplomatic cables, which revealed US pressures on the country to remove Khan from office.
This action was aparently taken by the Biden Administration due to Khan’s refusal to support a war against Russia in Ukraine.
Via The Intercept:
THE U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT encouraged the Pakistani government in a March 7, 2022, meeting to remove Imran Khan as prime minister over his neutrality on the Russian invasion of Ukraine, according to a classified Pakistani government document obtained by The Intercept.
The meeting, between the Pakistani ambassador to the United States and two State Department officials, has been the subject of intense scrutiny, controversy, and speculation in Pakistan over the past year and a half, as supporters of Khan and his military and civilian opponents jockeyed for power. The political struggle escalated on August 5 when Khan was sentenced to three years in prison on corruption charges and taken into custody for the second time since his ouster. Khan’s defenders dismiss the charges as baseless. The sentence also blocks Khan, Pakistan’s most popular politician, from contesting elections expected in Pakistan later this year.
Here is a paragraph from the leaked cable that describes a conversation between Donald Lu, the Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs, pressuring Asad Majeed Khan, who at the time was Pakistan’s ambassador to the U.S. to get rid of Imran Khan.
Don referred to Pakistan’s position on the Ukraine crisis and said that “people here and in Europe are quite concerned about why Pakistan is taking such an aggressively neutral position (on Ukraine), if such a position is even possible. It does not seem such a neutral stand to us.” He shared that in his discussions with the NSC, “it seems quite clear that this is the Prime Minister’s policy.” He continued that he was of the view that this was “tied to the current political dramas in Islamabad that he (Prime Minister) needs and is trying to show a public face.” I replied that this was not a correct reading of the situation as Pakistan’s position on Ukraine was a result of intense interagency consultations. Pakistan had never resorted to conducting diplomacy in public sphere. The Prime Minister’s remarks during a political rally were in reaction to the public letter by European Ambassadors in Islamabad which was against diplomatic etiquette and protocol. Any political leader, whether in Pakistan or the U.S., would be constrained to give a public reply in such a situation.
I asked Don if the reason for a strong U.S. reaction was Pakistan’s abstention in the voting in the UNGA. He categorically replied in the negative and said that it was due to the Prime Minister’s visit to Moscow. He said that “I think if the no-confidence vote against the Prime Minister succeeds, all will be forgiven in Washington because the Russia visit is being looked at as a decision by the Prime Minister. Otherwise, I think it will be tough going ahead.” He paused and then said “I cannot tell how this will be seen by Europe but I suspect their reaction will be similar.” He then said that “honestly I think isolation of the Prime Minister will become very strong from Europe and the United States.” Don further commented that it seemed that the Prime Minister’s visit to Moscow was planned during the Beijing Olympics and there was an attempt by the Prime Minister to meet Putin which was not successful and then this idea was hatched that he would go to Moscow.
The Biden regime is quickly making America the meddling, dishonest, bumbling and hated government in the international community.
