Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Imran Khan recently spoke with US Congressman Ted W. Lieu over the phone, which suggests that the relationship between the two parties is growing stronger. Lieu, who is also a veteran soldier and the vice-chair of the House Democratic Caucus of the Congress, informed Khan that the US State Department would be contacted about discriminatory moves being undertaken in Pakistan.
During their conversation, the two politicians discussed perceived threats to Pakistan’s democracy and human rights abuses. Lieu had already met with democratic Pakistani-American Dr. Asif, who had introduced him to the PTI chairman. This call comes a week after US Congressman Brad Sherman spoke to Khan about the Supreme Court’s decision to order the Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa elections.
Sherman, who represents California’s 32nd congressional district, urged Khan to follow the law and the Supreme Court’s ruling. He emphasized that “for democracies to work, the parties must uphold the rule of law and decisions of the Supreme Court.” Khan’s party has hired a lobbying company in Washington, and he has been in frequent communication with American politicians and other people.
These recent developments indicate that the relationship between the PTI and the US is strengthening, with American politicians taking an active interest in Pakistan’s political and social issues. It is important for both parties to work together to promote democracy, human rights, and the rule of law in Pakistan. By building strong relationships with other nations, Pakistan can improve its global standing and work towards a better future for its citizens.
