Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Monday held an exclusive meeting with Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi and exchanged with him views on the matters pertaining to the bilateral relations between both the brotherly nations.
During the meeting, both the leaders agreed in principle to further relations between both the countries. Imran Khan, on the occasion, said that the Muslim Ummah was facing a crisis while the western powers were labeling the Muslims as extremists which was a part of a well-conceived strategy.
“But the most disturbing fact is that the leadership of the Muslim Ummah needed to evolve a joint strategy to deal with the huge challenge as Islam was the most peaceful religion and the Muslims were for peace,” said the PTI leader.
He called upon the Egyptian President to play his role in deescalating the situation in Syria and the tensions between the Muslim Ummah which were mainly due to gulf between the leadership of brotherly Muslim states.
Imran Khan said that Egypt, being a centuries-old civilization, should take lead in removal of misunderstandings between the Western World and the Muslim Ummah. He said that it was time right to bridge the gulf within the Muslim states and between the west and the Muslim nations.
Egyptian President praised the efforts of Imran Khan for raising voice against corruption. He said that PTI wants to bring change in Pakistan similar to that once which his party had brought in Egypt. President Mohmmad expressed hope that after coming into power Imran Khan would work for the welfare of Pakistan. PTI leaders included Jahangir Tareen, Naeem-ul-Haq, Dr Shahzad Wasim and Jahangir Ashraf Qazi were also present on the occasion.
