EU president calls PM Imran Khan


A day after the prime minister fired a broadside at the European Union for pressurising Pakistan to condemn Russia’s actions in Ukraine, EU President Charles Michel made a phone call to Imran Khan.

In a tweet, Michel said that he spoke with the premier on the war on Ukraine.

“The conflict threatens multilateral order, international cooperation and economic development. Reaching a ceasefire, establishing humanitarian corridors and preventing further loss of lives is of the utmost urgency,” he added.

He further said that reaching a ceasefire, establishing humanitarian corridors and preventing further loss of lives is of the utmost urgency.

Prime Minister Imran Khan made headlines on Sunday for calling out European Union for their double standards to pressurize Pakistan to condemn Russia’s actions in Ukraine.

In a rare public joint statement released on March 1, heads of 22 diplomatic missions, including those of European Union member states urged Pakistan to support a resolution in the United Nations General Assembly condemning Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.

In a fiery speech at a political rally, Prime Minister Imran Khan lashed out saying if the West thought Pakistan was their slave.

“What do you think of us? Are we your slaves … that whatever you say, we will do?”

He went on to question whether a similar letter was sent to India who like Pakistan had also abstained from condemning Russia’s actions in Ukraine and did not take part in voting for the resolution against Moscow in UNGA.
