Pakistan trust vote: Opposition leaders slam Imran Khan, hear them out

Several Opposition leaders had asked Khan to divulge the details of the letter while denouncing it as an effort to divert pressure and hold on to power.

Pakistan's embattled Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday shared some details from what he called a "foreign conspiracy letter" with senior journalists and cabinet members, asserting that the document was authentic.

Khan waved a purported letter at a public rally on March 27 declared that a foreign conspiracy was afoot to remove him from power, touting the Opposition’s no-confidence move against him as a testimony of “foreign funded” move to topple his government.

Several Opposition leaders had asked Khan to divulge the details of the letter while denouncing it as an effort to divert pressure and hold on to power.

Khan first took the cabinet in confidence on the letter when Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi briefed the participants about it.

It was followed by a meeting of the premier with a group of journalists who were also briefed about it.

ARY News channel said that the letter was based on the minutes of a meeting of a Pakistan embassy official with officials of the host country.

The details of the meeting were sent by the Pakistan ambassador in that country to the Foreign Office as part of internal diplomatic communication, which showed that the host country was not happy with the policy of the Pakistan government on Ukraine and its ties with Russia.

"It reads that relations with Pakistan will be affected if PM Khan remains in power," the channel quoted the Prime Minister as telling the journalists.

He also said that the contents had been shared with the powerful military establishment.

Geo News quoted the premier telling the journalists that “threatening language” was used in the letter and it also talked about the no-confidence motion against the prime minister even before it was submitted in the National Assembly.

"The premier refused to share the exact threatening words used in the letter,” the channel reported, adding the name of the country was also not disclosed.

Reportedly, Khan was also planning to summon a meeting of the National Security Committee, comprising top military and civil leadership, to discuss the letter and its implications. He may also brief Parliament in a closed-door session.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Khan's address scheduled for Wednesday evening has been postponed, confirmed PTI Senator Faisal Javed Khan.
