The premier told the people of Mailsi that his parents had taught him and he had always believed that Pakistan should not be a “slave to anyone”.

“EU ambassadors wrote a letter to Pakistan to give an anti-Russia statement. I ask EU ambassadors did you write that letter to India as well?” said PM Imran.

The premier reminded the country that Pakistan had helped the Western bloc in the war on terror. He added that he would not have made Pakistan party to the war had been in government.

“Head of the country at that time supported them,” said PM Imran. He wondered what Pakistan got out of supporting the West apart from losing 80,000 of its citizens, displacement of 3.5 million people and losing over $100 billion.

“I ask EU ambassadors did you thank us? Did you say you helped us in our war? Did you appreciate us” asked PM Imran from the EU envoys.

The premier reminded the envoys that instead of thanking Pakistan the West had scapegoated Islamabad.

“Secondly, when India broke international law in Kashmir and ended Kashmir’s status did anyone of you break ties with India, end trade or criticise [New Delhi],” asked PM Imran.

“What are we? Are we your slaves? Do we do what you say?” said PM Imran.
