A top government official confirmed, on the condition of anonymity, that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s claims of receiving a “threatening letter” from foreign nations were established from a telegram sent by Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States (US) Asad Majeed Khan.
A local media outlet citing the official said that the telegram was received on March 7, a day before the opposition submitted a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan in the National Assembly.
“This telegram message is real. Although, its contents have not been shared, the message was that as long as the incumbent government is in power, there can be no substantial change in relations,” he said.
While addressing a rally on March 27, PM Khan waved around the letter that he claimed was a “written threat” against his government from the foreign elements. He alleged that it was part of a foreign conspiracy between foreign elements and some people within the country to attack him and his government.
The premier did not comment further on the matter, but fired up rumors regarding the contents and authenticity of the document. The letter allegedly contains direct quotes from US officials which were recorded by Ambassador Khan. However, there has been no official confirmation on the notion yet.
