Met Pasha, Imran separately: Munter

Munter distances himself from the Memogate scandal, says fate of Husain Haqqani is for Pakistan to decide.


Express November 22, 2011

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.

what is this hypocrisy by Imran Khan? He has been blaming the US for all of our troubles for the past 10 years and not meets their Ambassador in private? To discuss what? that he will do his best to appease the US if elected?
