PM lashes out at EU for asking Pak to condemn Russia

Taking exception to the letter written by European Union envoys in Pakistan, asking Islamabad to condemn Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Prime Minister Imran Khan, while slamming the regional bloc, asked where the same countries were when New Delhi broke international law in Kashmir.

He spoke about the European Union envoy’s letter to Pakistan during a public rally in the Tehsil Mailsi of the Vehari District.

“EU ambassadors wrote a letter to Pakistan, asking us to issue an anti-Russia statement. I ask EU ambassadors “did you write that letter to India as well?” said PM Imran.

The premier reminded the participants of the rally that Pakistan had helped the Western bloc throughout its War on Terror (WoT), adding that had he been in power at that time, he would have never made Pakistan a party to the war.

“The head of the country at that time supported the US,” said Imran Khan. He wondered what Pakistan got out of supporting the West apart from losing 80,000 of its citizens, displacement of 3.5 million people, and losing over $100 billion.

“I ask EU ambassadors, did you thank us? Did you say we helped you in your war? Did you appreciate us?” PM Imran questioned the EU envoys.

The premier reminded the envoys that instead of thanking Pakistan, there were some people in the West that scapegoated Islamabad.
