No request received on Imran Khan swearing-in: MEA

New Delhi: The Ministry of External Affairs on Thursday said that it has not received any request from anyone in India for attending the swearing-in of cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan as Pakistan Prime Minister.

“We have not received any such request,” ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said in response to a query at a media briefing here.

“I have read in the media that some people have said that if they go they will seek MEA’s advice,” Kumar said.

“If they approach us, then we will decide what advice to give.”

Earlier, there were reports that Khan would be inviting some of his fellow cricketers from India and as well as Bollywood stars but nothing has been confirmed.

Though the swearing-in ceremony was initially scheduled to be held on August 11, it has now been postponed and a fresh date is yet to be announced.
