The United States has been closely monitoring the situation in Pakistan and in touch with appropriate counterparts there.
US State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki in a briefing on Tuesday said, “The United States is in contact with the Pakistani government but not involved in any sort of internal political decision pertaining to the ongoing protest, and it was not a part of the negotiation process at all.”
Psaki reiterated that the US was in no way involved in the process or discussions between the parties and believed that the parties should work together to resolve differences through peaceful dialogue and ways to strengthen Pakistan’s democracy and rule of law.
She added that all the political parties should come to a political solution in co-operation with each other, and should work towards strengthening the foundations of democracy and rule of law.
The spokesperson refused to respond when asked if the US will oppose any means to change the government through violent means and said she had nothing to add to what she said earlier.
