Imran Khan has repeatedly stated claims that Donald Lu, the Assistant Secretary of the US Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs, was the one who visited Pakistan’s ambassador in Washington in March. He informed him that Khan should be removed from office in the confidence vote. Khan stated on Monday that Lu had threatened that “Pakistan will suffer consequences” if Khan were removed from office. Khan admitted that his visit to Russia in the latter part of February, which coincided with the day of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, was likely to have upset American officials.
“There is no truth to these allegations,” a US State Department spokesperson told CNN after having previously and repeatedly denied any involvement in the ousting of Khan.
Khan even said in the interview that Lu was dismissed because of being involved in Pakistan’s internal policies and “for bad manners and sheer arrogance.”
If asked to prove his claims for his assertions, Imran Khan said that there were note-takers from both US and Pakistani sides at the conference. However, he did not respond directly to questions about whether he’d be willing to make notes publically available.
He claimed that an encryption cypher — or diplomatic cable that outlined details of the conference sent by the Pakistani ambassador was passed on to the cabinet of Pakistan. Khan added that he had also handed over the minutes of that session to the National Security Council.

“People are so incensed and feel insulted that these criminals have been foisted upon us,” Khan stated.
Khan’s accusations are now a regular feature in rallies that he has staged throughout Pakistan to regain power.

Imran Khan stated to CNN that there is an outrage and “anti-Americanism right now” in the United States.

Visit of Khan’s to Moscow
Khan’s decision to have a meeting Putin Putin to discuss the war in Moscow at the time Russia started its war caused a stir within the west, even though Khan reiterated his claim on Monday that he didn’t have any idea Russia would attack that day.
He stated that it was something he “would regret” going if they had been aware of the attack.
Russia had built up tens of thousands of troops along the border with Ukraine for months before the war.
“I have opposed all military ways of achieving political ends,” Khan declared.
The trip was scheduled for a while and was crucial in securing Pakistan’s energy needs, Khan said, while his country struggled with soaring poverty and inflation.
The two talked about Russian gas, oil, and wheat exports to Pakistan.
“My responsibility is for the wellbeing. We have 50 million people living below the poverty line,” Khan stated.
Khan said relationships with Pakistan with the US were strained following the time President Joe Biden was elected and blamed Biden for the current situation in Afghanistan. As an indication of how fragile relations have turned, Biden and Khan have not had a conversation since Biden was inaugurated last year.
“I had perfectly good relationship with the Trump administration,” Khan declared. “It’s only when the Biden administration came, and it coincided with what was happening in Afghanistan. And for some reason, which I still don’t know, I never, they never got in touch with me.”
