WASHINGTON: The United States says it values its longstanding cooperation with Pakistan and has always viewed a prosperous and democratic Pakistan as critical to the US interests not just in the region, but also the world more broadly.

Answering a question during his press briefing at the US State Department in Washington, the Principal Deputy Spokesperson Vedant Patel said the United States supports peaceful upholding of democratic, constitutional, and legal principles. And we don’t have a position on one political candidate of a party versus another.

The US State Department Deputy Spokesperson said we will not let propaganda, misinformation, and disinformation get in the way of any bilateral relationship, including our valued bilateral partnership with Pakistan.

“The US values our longstanding cooperation with Pakistan and has always viewed a prosperous and democratic Pakistan as critical to US interests,” the Department’s Principal Deputy Spokesperson, Vedant Patel, said.

Imran Khan says will no longer ‘blame’ US

“That remains unchanged,” he stressed. “We don’t have a position on one political candidate of a party versus another,” Patel said, adding, “We support the peaceful upholding of democratic, constitutional, and legal principles.”

The United States has once again rejected the allegations levelled by former Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan, saying Washington will not let propaganda get in the way of bilateral relationship with Pakistan.

US State Department Principal Deputy Spokesperson Vedant Patel while briefing the newsmen in Washington on Wednesday said that US valued its longstanding cooperation with Pakistan.

Patel said that the United States has always viewed a prosperous and democratic Pakistan as critical to the US interests and that position remained unchanged.

When asked that former prime minister Imran Khan has backed out of his allegations when he (Imran) said he no longer blamed the US administration for removing him from power, Vedant Patel said that as they’ve previously said, there has – there is not and there has never been a truth to these allegations.

He said that they don’t have a position on one political candidate of a party versus another. “We support peaceful upholding of democratic, constitutional, and legal principles. And ultimately, we will not let propaganda, misinformation, and disinformation get in the way of any bilateral relationship, including our valued bilateral partner with Pakistan,” he maintained.

He said that the US valued its longstanding cooperation with Pakistan. It has always viewed a prosperous and democratic Pakistan as critical to their interests not just in the region, but also the world more broadly, the spokesman added.

When asked to comment on Imran Khan’s statement where he termed his Moscow visit an embarrassment, Patel said: “I really don’t have anything else to offer on Foreign Minister – or former Prime Minister Khan’s comments on that.”

"US State Department Principal Deputy Spokesperson Vedant Patel while briefing the newsmen in Washington on Wednesday said that US valued its longstanding cooperation with Pakistan." No offence, but his credibility vanished as soon as I read his name. This is how effective it is when a migrant population becomes the fifth column in a foreign land...
