Imran Khan – Mysuru Today

Prime News, International (Islamabad), Dec 11:- Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday trashed the emerging Cold-War mentality and said that his country did not want to be a part of any political bloc but instead wanted to play a role in bridging the gaps between the United States and China.

Addressing the Islamabad Conclave 2021, with the theme of “Peaceful and Prosperous South Asia”, Khan talked about the threat of a new Cold War between China and the US as well as his vision for peace in the region.

“The situation is going towards a (new) Cold War and blocs are forming,” Khan said. “Pakistan should try its best to stop the formation of these blocs because we should not become a part of any bloc.”

He said that the world, as well as Pakistan, suffered due to the rivalry between the superpowers in the past and it was against any new confrontation.

He said Pakistan tried to reduce tension between arch-rival Saudi Arabia and Iran and “both countries appreciated that we tried our best during a very critical phase where conflict could have occurred between them.”

Khan said that Pakistan enjoyed good ties with China and the US, and wanted to play a similar role in the current tension in US-China relations to “stop their growing distances”.

The relations between the US and China are at an all-time low. The two countries are engaged in a bitter confrontation over various issues, including trade, Beijing’s aggressive military moves in the disputed South China Sea and human rights in Hong Kong, Tibet and Xinjiang region.
