ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has stated no to the United States on its request of navy bases for future operations in Afghanistan.

The assertion from the premier got here throughout an interview with Jonathan Swan of HBO Axios, which will probably be aired Monday 3:00am PST.

PM Imran reiterated Pakistan’s stance on using navy bases and categorically acknowledged that Islamabad is not going to permit it.

The prime minister was requested by the American journalist for his feedback on giving entry to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to Pakistan navy bases as was permitted throughout the federal government of Pervez Musharraf.

“Will you allow the American government to have the CIA here in Pakistan to conduct cross border counter-terrorism missions against Al Qaeda, ISIS and the Taliban?” Swan requested the premier.

“Absolutely not,” PM Imran Khan responded.

“There’s no way we’re going to allow any bases or any sort of action from Pakistani territory into Afghanistan. Absolutely not.”

The US is in talks with Pakistan and different regional nations for cooperation in future operations within the war-torn nation to maintain a test on militancy.

However, the nation has conveyed to Washington that it isn’t attainable.
