Imran Khan hits back after Trump’s ‘tirade’ against Pakistan

Updated:4 weeks ago IST

New Delhi, Nov 20 (ANI): Pakistan leader Imran Khan hit back on Monday at US President Donald Trump’s claim that Islamabad does not do “a damn thing” for the US, calling on the president to name an ally that has sacrificed more against militancy. “Record needs to be put straight on Mr Trump’s tirade against Pakistan,” Khan, a former World Cup cricketer, wrote in a series of tweets defending his country’s record in Washington’s war on terror. Washington has long pressured Islamabad to crack down on militancy, accusing Pakistan of ignoring or even collaborating with groups that attack Afghanistan from safe havens along the border between the two countries. Pakistan, which joined the US war on terror in 2001, says it has paid the price for the alliance.
