US urges peaceful resolution of situation: US

WASHINGTON: The United States on Tuesday urged all sides in Pakistan to resolve their differences through peaceful dialogue in a way that strengthens democracy in the country. “We believe that all parties should work together to resolve their difference through peaceful dialogue in a way that strengthens Pakistan’s democracy,” Deputy Spokesperson at the State Department Marie Harf said. She was asked about the situation arising from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Pakistan Awami Tehreek marches on Islamabad. The spokesperson also called on all sides to avoid violence. “We are carefully monitoring. We urge all sides to refrain from violence, exercise restraint and respect the rule of law,” Harf added. Imran Khan says that the PTI wants real democracy in the country and has invited Pakistanis from all walks of life to participate in the “decisive final march to topple the corrupt rulers and overhaul the system”. Imran said that civil disobedience is the best weapon for achieving real independence from autocratic rulers and the system they have devised for themselves. “I promise civil disobedience will bring Sharif brothers to their knees and you all will see it,” he said amid applause from the crowd. He has reiterated that Sharif family has its assets outside the country.
