The defence minister said that the evidence pertaining to a meeting of a PTI leader with the US officials was available with the government.

Khawaja Asif said that PTI sought pardon from the US government.

Pertinent to note that forme premier Imran Khan repeatedly accusing the top US diplomat Donald Lu for using threatening and undiplomatic language in a meeting with a Pakistani ambassador when a no-confidence motion was being moved against him by his opponents PMLN, PPP and JUIF.

“The one shouting anti-US slogans in Pakistan is on his knees and seeking apology from US,” the PML-N stalwart said.

In a message conveyed to the US officials, Asif said the former premier, Imran Khan has admitted that he had committed a mistake and requested to start everything “from where it all started” – from the time when he started accusing the US of backing a ‘regime change operation’ in Pakistan.

Asif  said that Imran has conveyed to the diplomat that he wants to settle issues with the US.

He chided Imran by saying that all his arrogance was gone as he was now begging Lu to resolve issues that surfaced following his hard-hitting speeches against Lu and the US.
