Pakistan’s Imran Khan says meeting Donald Trump would be ‘bitter pill’
Imran Khan says meeting US President Donald Trump would be a ‘bitter pill’ to swallow should he become Pakistan’s prime minister in elections later this year
Islamabad: Famed cricketer turned politician Imran Khan says meeting US President Donald Trump would be a “bitter pill” to swallow should he become Pakistan’s prime minister in elections later this year, but added “I would meet him.”
In a press briefing, Khan, who has an international reputation as a ladies man and at home is seen more as a religious conservative, said he has been a staunch opponent of Pakistan’s participation in the war on terror since it began in 2001 following the 9/11 attacks on the US.
“Pakistan had nothing to do with it,” he said, adding he supported co-operation with the United States but not co- opting Pakistan’s military into a ground battle with its own people in the tribal regions that border Afghanistan and where Afghan insurgents hide.
