Pakistan likes to act as a bridge between US and China: Imran Khan

ISLAMABAD: Imran Khan, Pakistan's prime minister, has announced his desire to serve as a bridge between the United States and China, in order to reduce tensions between the two global superpowers and open the way for closer relations.

During an interview with China Global Television Network,  Pakistan's prime minister made this statement, underlining the need of dialogue in resolving all related concerns for regional and global stability.

"With the United States, we have a good connection, and with China, we have an iron-brother friendship. We aim to take on the role of Pakistan in the 1970s, when it was crucial in bringing the US and China together "he stated.  Khan said the world was not ready for another cold war between two powerful countries, referring to the historic Sino-US breakthrough in 1971, in which Pakistan played a key part. "Pakistan organised Henry Kissinger's (then-US Secretary of State) renowned visit, and we aim to play a similar role," Khan remarked.

Khan expressed optimism that tensions between the US and China would not grow, and that Pakistan would not want to be forced to take sides between the two countries. "The world should not be divided into two groups, as this is not beneficial to anyone. I sincerely hope that this does not devolve into another cold war in which we must select sides "he stated.
