We’re not your ‘hired gun’ anymore, Imran tells US
PAKISTANI Prime Minister Imran Khan has accused the US of “pushing Pakistan away” and said he would never want to have a relation with Washington where his country is treated like a “hired gun”.
“I would never want to have a relationship where Pakistan is treated like a hired gun -- given money to fight someone else’s war,” Khan said in an interview with the ‘Washington Post’ on Thursday, referring to the 1980s war against the Soviet Union and the ongoing war on terror.
“We should never put ourselves in this position again. It not only cost us human lives, devastation of our tribal areas, but it also cost us our dignity. We would like a proper relationship with the US,” he said.
