WASHINGTON: The United States values its longstanding cooperation with Pakistan, said US State Department principal deputy spokesperson Vedant Patel in a press briefing.

When asked that former prime minister Imran Khan backed out of his allegations about the US administration for removing him from power, Vedant Patel said that as we’ve previously said there has never been a truth to these allegations.

He said that we don’t have a position on one political candidate of a party versus another. We support the peaceful upholding of democratic, constitutional, and legal principles.
