ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that he could talk to his British counterpart Boris Johnson for Nawaz Sharif’s return and if required, he would personally go to the UK as well.
In an interview to a private TV channel, PM Imran Khan said the government had asked the Lahore High Court to allow Nawaz Sharif’s departure against bonds of Rs 7 billion but the court disagreed and settled for Shehbaz Sharif’s guarantee instead.
The Prime Minister said that if need be, he would talk to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and if he has to go to London to bring Nawaz Sharif back, he would do that also.
Imran Khan said that he is ready to talk with the opposition about everything, including the election, but he will not give an NRO. The PM said that Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa informed him of opposition members coming to meet him. He said that he thinks General Bajwa meeting with opposition members was a mistake.
Regarding the opposition, he said that these people come to power to build factories, properties and to reward their own families. The country sank into debt due to the corruption of former rulers, he added.
