Indo-U. S. joint statement reduces Pakistan to promoter of cross-border terrorism: Imran Khan
Imran Khan, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, criticized the joint statement issued by India and the United States during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ongoing state visit to America. According to Khan, the joint statement reduces Pakistan to being solely a promoter of cross-border terrorism in India and disregards any other aspects of the country.
The joint statement, which followed one-on-one meetings and delegation-level talks between Prime Minister Modi and U.S. President Joe Biden on June 22, called upon Pakistan to take action against those responsible for the 26/11 Mumbai and Pathankot attacks.
Imran Khan’s remarks reflect his disagreement with how Pakistan is portrayed in the joint statement. He believes that it oversimplifies Pakistan’s role and neglects its contributions in other areas. The emphasis on Pakistan’s alleged involvement in cross-border terrorism seems to be a contentious point for Khan.
It is important to recognize that differing perspectives on matters of terrorism and regional security are common among nations. The joint statement represents the viewpoints and priorities of India and the United States, while Imran Khan’s comments express his perspective as a former Pakistani leader.
As events unfold, it is crucial for all parties to engage in constructive dialogue and seek common ground to address their differences. Effective communication, understanding, and cooperation can contribute to fostering peace, stability, and collaboration in the region.
