New Delhi: Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday once again pointed out at India’s foreign policy and appreciated its stance on importing Russian oil. Stressing that ‘New Delhi’s decision is for the betterment of its people,’ Khan said, “India, which is a strategic partner to the United States, is importing oil from Russia. But our foreign policy is for the betterment of other people.”
Earlier in March, too, Khan admitted that the foreign policy of India is independent and for the betterment of the people.
Imran Khan had then said: “I praise our neighbouring country as they always had an independent foreign policy. Today India is in their (America) alliance and they are part of QUAD (Quadrilateral Security Dialogue); they say that they are neutral. They are importing oil from Russia despite sanctions because their policy is for the betterment of people.”
Defending his stance over Russia visit,said he visited Moscow so that the growing inflation in Pakistan could be controlled. “I went to Russia because Russia gave us oil at a discount of 30 per cent,” he reiterated once again at the rally.
Khan also noted that boosting trade with China also didn’t go down well with the West. “Since they did not like all of these things, a conspiracy was planned. But no conspiracy can be successful without the support of Mir Jafars and Mir Sadiqs,” the ousted premier added.
Hitting out at the incumbent government, he added that three stooges including Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, PPP Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari, and JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman — fully supported the foreign conspiracy. Khan also claimed that his party was removed from power at a time when the country was progressing, with the remittances, tax collection, and development at historic levels.
“The unemployment level was at its lowest; we were ahead of everyone. Our government also handled the coronavirus in an exemplary manner as we saved lives and the employment of our poor people,” Khan said.
