RAWALPINDI: US Ambassador to Pakistan Cameron Munter has admitted that he met the chiefs of the Inter-Services Intelligence agency and the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaaf, but on separate occasions.
However, he refrained from divulging any more details as he spoke to reporters in Rawalpindi.
A leading British newspaper The Sunday Times had claimed that PTI chief Imran recently met Munter in the presence of ISI chief Pasha – a report strongly denied by the military as well as the PTI.
Munter also distanced himself from the
Memogate scandal and said that it was Pakistan’s internal issue, but if requested he will help out with the inquiry.
However, he sought to dispel the impression that the scandal could affect the relations between Pakistan and the US.
