Pakistan fought ‘imposed war’, will never do it again: Imran Khan

Srinagar: “Pakistan shall not fight any imposed war inside its territory again,” Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said Monday in an oblique reference to the war on terrorism which he has repeatedly said in the past, is not our war, Express Tribune reported.

Pakistan joined the US-led war on terrorism after the 9/11 terrorist attacks and has suffered colossally since then, but Washington doesn’t acknowledge the match-less sacrifices of its on-off ally and instead keep pushing Islamabad to do more.

The recent outburst of allegations by US President Donald Trump in an interview with Fox News further disillusioned Pakistan with Premier Imran saying that “now we will do what is best for our people, our interests”.

“We have fought an imposed war inside our country as our war at a very heavy cost of sweat and blood and loss to our socio-economic fibre,” said the Pakistan prime minister while addressing a jirga, or tribal assembly, in North Waziristan district of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.
