PM Imran Khan will be facing a no-confidence motion passed against him on Sunday, 3rd April. He is expected to be voted out of the parliament. Before the no-trust motion, he publicly announced the threatening letter issued by the USA for Pakistan to face severe consequences if the ‘no trust motion’ against PM Imran Khan becomes unsuccessful. USA has claimed that relations between Pakistan and USA will remain stall till PM Imran Khan is in power.
Involvement of USA
Questions were raised on the authenticity of his letter by the opposition members, however, National Security Council has declared the letter a direct involvement of the USA in the internal matters of Pakistan. PTI member Faisal Vawda has already claimed that the life of PM Imran Khan is under threat.
Pakistan Thursday handed over the “requisite demarches” through diplomatic channels as decided earlier in the National Security Committee meeting, a statement from the Foreign Office said.
The National Security Committee, the country’s highest security forum that was summoned earlier expressed grave concern at the communication from a country, and termed the language used by the foreign official as “undiplomatic.”
“The Committee concluded that the communication amounted to blatant interference in the internal affairs of Pakistan by the country in question, which was unacceptable under any circumstances.”
The National Security Committee (NSC) was chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan and was attended by Federal Ministers of Defence, Energy, Information & Broadcasting, Interior, Finance, Human Rights, Planning, Development & Special Initiatives, Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee, Services Chiefs, National Security Adviser, and senior officers.
