Islamabad:

Pakistan’s deposed Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that while in power he never agreed to US demand for military bases in the country following the evacuation of US troops from neighboring Afghanistan. are. This information has come to the fore in a media report. Cricketer-turned-politician Khan, 69, was ousted last month through a motion of no confidence. Khan had accused the US of being behind it, terming it a conspiracy by opposition parties to bring a no-confidence motion.

According to the Dawn newspaper news, while addressing Pakistanis living abroad, Khan said in a video message that the US wanted a base in Pakistan so that it could retaliate from here in case of terrorist activities in Afghanistan. Khan claimed that this was not acceptable to him at all. He said Pakistan has already lost 80,000 lives in the US-led “war on terror” and yet Pakistan’s sacrifice was never appreciated. The former Prime Minister said that instead of appreciating, many American leaders kept blaming Pakistan for this.

According to the report, Khan said, “First they blamed us, did not appreciate us. Our country and its tribal areas have been devastated and now (they) are seeking a place again. I never agreed to it and then from there the problems (between us) started.
