Pakistanis Love Prime Minister Imran Khan's Statements Against US Foreign Office Claims And Shit's Going Down

By Ramsha Bhatti | 25 Aug, 2018

Prime Minister Imran Khan has been receiving congratulatory phone calls left, right, and center ever since he took office. The latest addition to this list has become embroiled in a bit of a controversy.

So what happened was that during a call made by U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, while congratulations were in due order, certain contradicting statements issued by both countries has stirred the pot.


The U.S. foreign office made a few claims in their latest press release which seemed seriously questionable

The Spokesperson for the U.S. Secretary of State told the American media that Mike Pompeo had a telephone conversation with PM Imran Khan and congratulated him for his victory in the general elections. The two political figureheads discussed political agendas briefly as well, and everything went well between them.

As per Mike Pompeo, he had discussed the will to work with Imran Khan to completely eradicate terrorist groups and hideouts in Pakistan.


For long, the statement didn’t seem out of the ordinary: The U.S. talking about war on terrorism. It didn’t feel like anything out of the ordinary. However, Prime Minister Imran Khan and Pakistan’s Foreign office stepped forward with a completely different statement regarding the official phone call.


As per PM Imran Khan, no conversation around terrorism in Pakistan had been made and he demanded that the U.S. Foreign Office amend the mistake as soon as possible

Obviously, the U.S. Foreign Office was not just going to sit there and take the blame so they retaliated as quickly as possible

Following the entire political debacle, Pakistanis are pissed as hell and are supporting Imran Khan’s outright rejection of the claims made by the U.S.

People of Pakistan are demanding for the U.S office to issue an apology ASAP.

People are equally proud of Prime Minister Imran Khan standing his ground and retorting against the claim of Pakistan harboring terrorist groups

Naya Pakistan is playing out in all of its glory, and Pakistanis couldn’t be happier

It can be said to be a historical statement for Pakistan.

Pakistanis have come up with a solution to put an end to the confusion: release the recording of the call for the masses

I mean it might damage the credibility and trust which exists between the two political entities, but so far that seems to be the only way out of the mess.

While all of this plays out and both governments decide what to do, we can’t help but wonder who is at fault. One of the parties is at fault, now let’s just hope it’s not us.


In the meantime, let us know what do you think about this matter? Who could be at fault in this situation? Will it be wise to release the audio recording? Do share your take on the matter.
