US in agreement with ISPR’s stance on ‘foreign conspiracy’

The United States has agreed to yesterday’s statement given by the spokesperson of the Pakistani military wherein the impression of any conspiracy by the US to change the regime in Pakistan was dismissed.

Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Major General Babar Iftikhar on Thursday, while speaking to the media, said that there was no evidence of any foreign conspiracy to oust former prime minister Imran Khan, although, he said that there was an exchange of diplomatic messages but those did not fall into the category of conspiracy.

Later in the day, a senior US official gave a statement in response to a question from a journalist who asked for comments on the recent development whereby the ISPR had given a statement on the prevailing circumstances in Pakistan.

US State Department Spokesman Ned Price said, “We would agree with it.”

Maj. Gen. Iftikhar also said that the military’s stance on the diplomatic cable was formulated after a thorough investigation by an intelligence agency.

Earlier, during another press briefing, Ned also said that the US supported the peaceful upholding of constitutional and democratic principles, including respect for human rights and they did not support, whether in Pakistan or anywhere else around the world, one political party over another.

On Wednesday, US Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken had also congratulated the newly elected Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and vowed to continue its long-standing cooperation with Pakistan’s government.

In another development, earlier this week, Pentagon Spokesperson John Kirby had also insisted that the US had a healthy military-to-military relationship with Pakistani armed forces.
