US ‘certainly aware’ of Imran’s Moscow visit


US State Department Spokesperson Ned Price on Wednesday said the US had communicated its position regarding Russia’s “renewed invasion of Ukraine” to Pakistan, adding that it was the responsibility of every country to “voice objection” to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s plans.

He was responding to a question during a briefing about how the US saw Prime Minister Imran Khan’s visit to Russia amid tensions between Moscow and Ukraine, which has since escalated to an armed conflict.

“We’ve communicated to Pakistan our position regarding Russia’s further renewed invasion of Ukraine, and we have briefed them on our efforts to pursue diplomacy over war,” Price said, according to a transcript available on the State Department website.

During a briefing on Wednesday, Price was asked by a reporter what the State Department’s assessment was of the timing of PM Imran’s visit.
