Former Pakistani ambassador Asad Majeed Khan takes a stand on threat letter

Asad Majeed Khan, a former Pakistani ambassador to the United States (US), has maintained his hard stance on his remark regarding the threatening diplomatic communication, despite pressure from the current government, according to sources.

According to sources, the current government attempted to pressurize ex-ambassador Asad Majeed Khan into changing his statement regarding threatening diplomatic communication, but Majeed refused to change his stance.

It has been learned that he has refused to shift his position on the threatening letter, which he has described as an intervention in the internal affairs of Pakistan.

At an earlier meeting that day, the National Security Committee (NSC) deliberated over a “threatening” letter received from the Pakistani embassy in Washington and came to the conclusion that “there has been no external conspiracy” to depose Prime Minister Imran Khan’s government.

According to a statement issued following the meeting, the 38th NSC meeting, after evaluating the contents of the letter, upheld the decisions of the previous NSC meeting (which took place during the previous government of former Prime Minister Imran Khan).

During the discussion, Dr. Asad Majeed Khan, a former Pakistani ambassador to Washington, provided an overview of the contents of the diplomatic cable.

“The National Security Council (NSC) has been advised once more by the main security agencies that they have discovered no proof of any conspiracy. The National Security Council has concluded that there has been no foreign conspiracy as a result of its analysis of the contents of the letter, the evaluations it has received, and the judgments offered by security agencies, as said in a statement.
The chiefs of the services and federal ministers were in attendance at the meeting.

At the time of the last National Security Council meeting, the committee expressed grave concerns about the threatening memo of communication from the foreign official, describing it as “undiplomatic” and amounted to “blatant interference in the internal affairs of Pakistan by the country in question, which was unacceptable under any circumstances.”
