Islamabad, July 25: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan received a warm welcome from his party workers as he returned from his tour of the US, Pakistani media reported. They raised slogans hailing him amid the beating of drums. Speaking about it, Imran Khan said that it seems he has returned after winning the world cup, not from some foreign visit. Many senior leaders of his party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, were present to welcome him at Islamabad International Airport on Wednesday night.
Addressing them, Khan said: "We have to make a 'New Pakistan'. We are confident that Pakistan will become a great country as thought by great poet and philosopher, Allama Iqbal but this won't happen by begging. Neither have I bowed before anyone nor will I let Pakistanis bow before anyone. Countries who have become great have never begged for anything." Imran Khan Promises to Develop Best Pakistan Cricket Team Before ICC World Cup 2023.
While returning from the US, Imran Khan made a brief halt in Qatar and met his counterpart Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani. Both the leaders discussed strengthening of relations between the two countries.
