Imran Khan hits back at Trump: Here’s what foreign media is saying

With Prime Minister Imran Khan lashing out at United States (US) President Donald Trump and stating that his “baseless rhetoric” will no longer be acceptable to the country, the former’s statements have been very well received by people – especially Pakistanis – on social as well as mainstream media.

Amid all the praise that PM Khan’s tweets have attracted, here’s how his response to Trump’s tirade against Pakistan has been covered by foreign media.

“We no longer pay Pakistan the billions because they would take our money and do nothing for us, Bin Laden being a prime example, Afghanistan being another,” the US president had tweeted Monday.

Responding to Trump’s statements, PM Khan had said that Islamabad had decided to “participate in the US War on Terror” although no Pakistani was involved in the 9/11 attacks.

“Pakistan suffered 75,000 casualties in this war and over $123 billion was lost,” he had added, of which “US ‘aid’ was a minuscule $20bn”.

In addition to economic losses, PM Khan had highlighted the impact of the US war on Pakistan’s tribal areas.

“Can Mr Trump name another ally that gave such sacrifices?” he had asked.

“He [Trump] needs to be informed about historical facts. Pak has suffered enough fighting US war. Now we will do what is best for our people & our interests.”
