Khan seeks immediate talks amid Pakistan army stand-off
Former Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan has appealed for immediate talks with state officials, as pressure increased on him amidst a crackdown on his top aides and supporters.
Khan has been embroiled in a tussle with the military since he was removed from power last year in a parliamentary vote that he says was orchestrated by the country’s top generals.
The military denies this.
The stand-off intensified when earlier this month Khan’s supporters were involved in violent protests following his brief arrest on May 9.
