Donald Lu avoids ‘direct answer’ to query about threatening Imran Khan￼
When asked about the regime transition in Pakistan, US Assistant Secretary of State for Central and South Asia, Donald Lu, who was recently named by Imran Khan as the man who made threatening remarks about his regime in a letter, avoided the subject when the Hindustan Times interviewed him as he is presently visiting India.
“Imran Khan seems to insinuate that you had a conversation with the Pakistani ambassador in the US and advised him that if Imran Khan survives the no-confidence motion, Pakistan is in trouble and the US will not forgive Pakistan,” the interviewer said. “Any response?” “We are following developments in Pakistan, and we respect and support the country’s constitutional process and the rule of law,” Donald Lu said, avoiding a direct response. When asked if he had such a conversation, the US official again avoided the subject, simply responding, “That’s all I have for you at this point.”
