WASHINGTON – US radio host and notable TV personality Glenn Beck was all praise for Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan for his admirable contributions in the safe evacuation of people from Afghanistan.

The Mercury Radio Arts CEO, whose charity organization has been contributing in evacuations from the war-raked country following the Taliban takeover, shared a series of tweets, in which he mentioned Khan as the only leader who responded to the calls of help.

“We reached out and asked numerous leaders and civil societies around the world for help and Prime Minister Imran Khan of Pakistan responded with determination and without hesitation,” he wrote in one of the tweets. Adding that, he will share further details – about the correspondence – on the next day.

US right-wing political commentator said Pakistan has helped people irrespective of religious and political differences purely on a humanitarian basis in the war-torn country.

Previously, reports in international media said around six planes, including one of Beck's charity was ‘grounded by the Taliban’ in Afghanistan. Beck's statement also commended support from Pakistani PM and his ability to ‘cooperate with new Afghan setup’ that enabled the first two flights to depart including the one which carried FIFA female athletes.
