Pakistan expects from US an even-handed treatment with respect to India: PM Imran
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday said Pakistan expected from the United States an even-handed treatment with respect to India, especially on the Kashmir dispute.
“The South Asian region is a hot-spot and it could flare up at any time,” he said in an interview with a German magazine in Islamabad.
The prime minister said the United States thought that India will contain China, which was a completely flawed premise.
He said India was a threat to its neighbours, including China, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
Imran Khan said India had currently the most extremist and racist government on the subcontinent, inspired by the Nazis of 1920s and 30s.
About Afghanistan, the prime minister said from day one, his government had been fostering dialogue to resume peace in that country.
“Pakistan has no favourites in Afghanistan and our only interest is that the future government in Kabul does not allow India to operate from there against us,” he said.
On the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Sudan having established relations with Israel, Imran Khan said every country had its own foreign policy but Pakistan cannot recognize Israel unless there was a just settlement of the Palestinian issue.
