- FO spokesperson said the election was an internal matter of the US.
Pakistan has said that it looks forward to working with the next United States president be it Donald Trump or Joe Biden who wins the elections.
Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said that the election was an internal matter of the US and conveyed the country's best wishes to Americans. "Pakistan looks forward to working with anyone whoever wins today,” the FO spokesperson said.
Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan had also said that the country expects evenhanded treatment from the US with respect to India, especially with the dispute in Kashmir regardless of who wins the elections. "The US thinks that India will contain China, which is a completely flawed premise," the PM further said.
The PM was of the opinion that while Biden is in front in the opinion polls, Trump is very unpredictable, 'because he is not like normal politicians'.
Meanwhile, as counting continues, Trump has claimed that he has won the US election and said he will approach the Supreme Court to stop all vote counting.
“If the president makes good on his threat to go to court to try to prevent the proper tabulation of votes, we have legal teams standing by ready to deploy to resist that effort," Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon said in a statement.
