Imran says he backs out from matter of COAS' appointment.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan on Wednesday said that he backed out from the matter of the Army Chief's appointment.

During his meeting with the media, the former prime minister lashed out at Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif over the appointment of the Army Chief, claiming that he [Nawaz] wants the appointment of such an Army Chief, who would handle Nawaz's cases and other matters. Imran also stated that no Army Chief will take a stand against the state or the people.

The PTI chief reiterated that he wants to maintain positive relations with the United States, but he would prioritize national interests over personal ones in this regard.

Speaking about the PTI long march, the former premier said that the results of his long march have begun to show their positive outcome, after attempts to sabotage his 'actual freedom' march - by bloodbath - were foiled.

Stressing the need for the holding of snap polls again, Imran said that to undo the 'rapid destruction', there is a dire need for early and transparent elections.
