Washington (Web Desk): The US State Department on Wednesday categorically denied US involvement in the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan, saying no US government agency or official had sent a letter to Pakistan on the current political situation in the country.
“There is no truth to these allegations,” said a State Department spokesperson while responding to questions about the alleged letter and US involvement in the no-confidence motion against the PTI government.
Earlier, PM Imran showed a “threat letter”, purportedly containing evidence of a foreign conspiracy against the PTI-led government, to senior journalists and the cabinet members.
During a party’s power show titled “Amr Bil Maroof” event at Parade Ground in Islamabad on Sunday, PM Imran claimed that the he had written proof that “foreign-funded conspiracy” hatched to topple his government through a no-confidence motion tabled by the country’s joint opposition over his refusal to have Pakistan’s foreign policy be influenced from abroad.
“Attempts are being made through foreign money to change the government in Pakistan. Our people are being used. Mostly inadvertently, but some people are using money against us. We know from what places attempts are being to pressure us. We have been threatened in writing but we will not compromise on national interest,” the premier said.
