The United States values its relationship with Pakistan and recognizes its role as an important partner on a wide array of mutual interests for nearly 75 years, the statement said.

A strong, prosperous and democratic Pakistan is essential for the interests of both countries, the statement added. On April 9, the Pakistani parliament ousted former Prime Minister Imran Khan in a vote of no confidence.

Khan said the United States interfered in the internal affairs of Pakistan as a result of him pursuing an independent foreign policy in the interest of the country. The US State Department has since dismissed Khan’s statement as untrue.
