WASHINGTON (Agencies) – The United States has said that we’re monitoring the growing political crisis in Pakistan.
Briefing the journalists in Washington, Marie Harf, spokesperson of the State Department, said that we think there should be a space in Pakistan for peaceful expression of views. So it’s something we’re looking at.
She said that US is not interfering in Pakistan crisis and is in no way involved in the process or the discussion between the parties. Any suggestion to the contrary is completely false.
We are watching situation in Pakistan very closely, but we do think that there needs to be peaceful dialogue and no attempts to change Pakistan’s government through extra-constitutional attempts.
“Nawaz Sharif is prime minister; that’s who we will keep working with, as we will with a number of people in Pakistan as well” she said.
