Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan addressed to the British parliamentarians on Monday. During his address to parliamentarians, Imran said that UK is well-capable of resolving the Kashmir dispute but in the presence of Narendra Modi there is little hope for success.

PTI chairman said that Pak-US relations are not cordial and that the US is indeed a superpower which needs to understand Pakistan’s point of view. US has no right to put blame on Pakistan for its failures and said that friendly relation with the US is in the interest of Pakistan but relations between the two states must be based on mutual respect.

Khan said that Pakistan is moving fast towards development and stability. He further added that for the first time in the history of this country, the army chief is backing democracy and judiciary which is also independently playing its constitutional role.

Imran Khan also added that Nawaz Sharif in the past had victimised his political opponent through his loyal judges, evidence of audio recordings are available which show that Nawaz used judges for his own interest.

Khan also said that Nawaz considers fair and transparent elections a conspiracy against him.

7 million overseas Pakistanis are an important asset and their investment into the country could be more significant than CPEC. Provision of employment to youth is an important responsibility for him and his 100 days plan will be focused on this issue, Khan added.
