ISLAMABAD – Pakistan’s ousted prime minister Imran Khan, who blamed the US behind his ouster, now signaled mending ties with Washington through cooperation in the future.

Khan made statements in an interview with Financial Times. Sharing his fresh thoughts about the alleged conspiracy, the PTI chief said that “As far as I’m concerned it’s over, it’s behind me”.

He said the Pakistan I want to lead must have good ties with all countries, especially the US, while he lamented past relationships between the two sides.

Khan alleged Washington of having a master-slave relationship with the South Asian nations, saying Pakistani leaders were used like a hired gun but clarified that he blame his own government more than the foreign powers.

The defiant politician continued saying that snap polls were the only way to end the political quagmire however he did not mention plans for the coming days as the cash-strapped country facing the worst economic crisis in recent years.

Commenting on the role of the establishment, he said the nexus of institutions with political dynasties like the Sharif family creates haphazard situations, adding the latter acted as ‘if they’re above law’.

Earlier, the former PM said the move to remove him from premiership was an attempt at regime change backed by Washington however Biden-led administration always denied that they remove Khan from power.
