PTI Chairman Imran Khan has signalled the desire to mend ties with the United States through cooperation with Washington in the future, despite maintaining the stance of a “US conspiracy” behind his ouster as the prime minister, Financial Times reported.

The PTI chairman was removed from office through a vote of no-confidence by the then-opposition on April 9. Khan, who says America treats Pakistan as a “slave”, blamed PM Shehbaz Sharif and the US for his ouster, however, both deny the claims.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Khan said that “he no longer blamed the US” and wants “dignified” ties with the country if he comes back to power.

Referring to the alleged conspiracy, Khan said that “it was over”.

“As far as I’m concerned it’s over, it’s behind me. The Pakistan I want to lead must have good relationships with everyone, especially the United States,” he said.

“Our relationship with the US has been as of a master-servant relationship, or a master-slave relationship, and we’ve been used like a hired gun. But for that I blame my own governments more than the US,” the publication quoted the former premier as saying.—Web Desk
