Won’t let propaganda harm ties with Pakistan: US

The US asserted that it has always viewed a prosperous and democratic Pakistan as critical to its interests.

US State Department Spokesman Ned Price has once again rejected PTI Chairman and former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s regime change conspiracy and has also vowed to not let disinformation get in the way of a significant relationship between the two countries.

According to the details, Ned Price made the remarks during a press briefing where he was asked about the US stance regarding Imran Khan’s allegations that the US was behind his government’s ouster.

“We won’t let propaganda, we won’t let misinformation or disinformation get in the way of an important bilateral relation, including our valued bilateral partnership with Pakistan,” Ned Price reiterated while adding that the US can only counter disinformation and misinformation with information.

“We value that longstanding cooperation between the United States and Pakistan. We’ve always viewed a prosperous and democratic Pakistan as critical to our interests. That remains unchanged,” Ned Price also said.

Responding to a question regarding the elections in Pakistan, the spokesman said the US supports the peaceful upholding of constitutional and democratic principles not just in Pakistan, but around the world.

Regime change conspiracy

PTI Chairman and former Prime Minister Imran Khan has claimed countless times that his government was removed as part of a “foreign-funded conspiracy” hatched by the US in cahoots with the incumbent government. The alleged “US conspiracy” has become an important part of Imran Khan’s political narrative.

On the other hand, the US has rejected the regime change conspiracy several times now and reiterated that it values its relations with Pakistan. Even Pakistan’s Army rejected the regime change conspiracy.

Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Major General Babar Iftikhar earlier categorically rejected the “regime change conspiracy” narrative.

The DG ISPR made it clear that all three service chiefs were present in the National Security meetings and were briefed by the agencies that there was no evidence of regime change conspiracy.
