The US State Department has once again spurned Prime Minister Imran Khan’s allegations of toppling his government through a no-trust motion by funding the opposition.

During a regular press briefing, State Department spokesperson Ned Price rejected the allegation and said: “The US believes in democratic principle, not only in Pakistan but around the world.”

“There is no truth to the allegation as you heard from me last week, we support the peaceful upholding of constitutional democratic principle,” he added.

Price further maintained that the US never supports one political party as it encourages broader principles.

“We do not support one political party over another, we support the broader principles, the principles of rule, of law, and equal justice under the law,” he said.

The State Department and White House have already rejected Imran’s allegations and said the US government has nothing to do with it.

Imran had on March 27 alleged that the US was interfering in Pakistan’s politics and plotting to oust his regime through a no-trust motion in the National Assembly.

He brandished a “threat letter” at a public gathering, saying that a foreign country has warned of dire consequences if he remained in power.
