ISLAMABAD — Former Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan on Saturday strongly reacted to US President Joe Biden’s remarks about Pakistan’s nuclear programme.

A transcript of the speech available on the White House’s website quoted Biden as saying in the context of the changing geopolitical situation, “… And what I think is maybe one of the most dangerous nations in the world: Pakistan. Nuclear weapons without any cohesion.”

Reacting to Biden’s statement, Khan took to Twitter and wrote, “I have 2 Qs on this: 1. On what info has @POTUS reached this unwarranted conclusion on our nuclear capability when, having been PM, I know we have one of the most secure nuclear command & control systems? 2. Unlike the US which has been involved in wars across the world, when has Pakistan shown aggression esp post-nuclearisation?

“Equally imp, this Biden statement shows total failure of Imported govt’s foreign policy & its claims of “reset of relations with US”? Is this the “reset”? This govt has broken all records for incompetence.

“My greatest worry is that apart from leading us to economic ruin &, with NRO2 for themselves, giving a license to white collar criminals to plunder the country, this govt will also end up completely compromising our national security.”

Khan, whose government was toppled through a vote of no-confidence on April 10 this year, claims the United States got him removed from prime minister’s office in connivance with Pakistan’s military establishment and corrupt political parties.

Since April 10, Khan has been spearheading an anti-government movement and strongly critical of the rulers and the top military leadership. Khan’s anti-government narrative is widely recognised across Pakistan and he has received a huge response from people at the public gatherings almost in every big city of the country.

However, Khan’s demand for early elections has not been accepted yet. To have this demand accepted, Khan has asked his supporters to be prepared because he can give the final call for removal of the incumbent government anytime.
