BISHKEK (Web Desk) – Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf-led (PTI) government do not have to buy arms because we want to spend money on human development.
In an interview with Russian Media Outlet Sputnik on Thursday, he said that Pakistan is looking for any kind of mediation, as it believes that progress comes with peace and tensions with neighbours detract from resources that can be spent on human beings.
He said Pakistan believes in peace with all the neighbours, especially with India. He said money should be spent on getting people out of poverty, like China got millions and millions of people out of poverty.
To a question regarding Islamabad’s plans to purchase Russian weapons as well, the prime minister said that yes, we are looking for arms from Russia, and I know our military is already in touch with the Russian military.
