Recognising Taliban govt first to put ‘too much pressure on Pakistan’: PM Imran Khan

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has said if Pakistan becomes the first country to recognise the Taliban-led government, the international community’s pressure on Islamabad would be “too much” to bear.

“If Pakistan was the first to grant recognition of Taliban, the international pressure would become too much for us as we try to turn our economy around,” he said in an interview with French daily Le Figaro.

“To be isolated by becoming the only state (to recognise the Taliban regime) would be the last thing we would want,” the prime minister said, noting that Pakistan wanted the recognition of the Taliban government as a “collective process”.
