Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has demanded the government to call a joint session of the parliament over Trump’s latest remarks against Pakistan.
Branding it government’s inefficiency, Khan said in a press conference that India was being praised internationally while Pakistan was being leveled allegations against.
Over one lac NATO sodiers cannot check troubled Afghanistan, Khan rhetorically questioned.
The PTI chief stressed that US needs Pakistan’s support to sort out trouble in Afghanistan.
He criticised Defence Minister Khurram Dastgir for not defending the country, slamming the ruling party that even China defended Pakistan while the leaders of our country remained silent. “Pakistan sacrificed a lot in war against terrorism … Donald Trump has no understanding of the regional matters,” he said.
PTI chief said civil and military leadership should converge on same page, warning the US that Pakistan’s government, armed forces and nation are all united. He pointed out that India is being praised despite sacrifices made by Pakistan. He claimed Nawaz Sharif told US that the politicians are with them but army disagrees with the notion. Our political leadership is scared which is why army chief has to give statements, hence creating a hollow space, he added.
