US denies sending ‘conspiracy’ letter to topple Imran Khan govt

Prime News, International (Washington), March 31:- Amid Pakistan’s political turmoil and the controversy surrounding the purported ‘foreign conspiracy letter’, the United States on Wednesday denied reports of any specific message being delivered to Pakistan’s then-ambassador to the US.

No US government agency had sent a letter to Pakistan on the current political situation in the country, the Joe Biden-led country said.

While responding to the question regarding the alleged ‘letter’ and ‘US involvement in a no-confidence motion against Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’, a State Department spokesperson said, “there is no truth to these allegations,” Pakistani newspaper Dawn reported.

Imran Khan on Wednesday shared some details of the “foreign conspiracy letter” with senior journalists and cabinet members, asserting that the document was authentic and a foreign conspiracy was afoot to remove him from power, touting the Opposition’s no-confidence motion against him as a testimony of “foreign-funded” move to topple his government.

According to some media reports, it was assumed that the ‘foreign-conspiracy’ letter was sent to Ambassador Asad Mujeed on the basis of his meeting with the Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs, Donald Lu.

The letter can be the diplomatic cable from Washington, drafted by a Pakistani diplomat.

“The contents of the letter, apparently, are based on informal discussions between Pakistani and other officials,” a source was quoted as saying by Dawn.

“The contents, if correct, show a set of friendly officials from various countries indulging in some loud-thinking and probing. Nothing more,” the source added. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
