Imran Khan: 'Pakistan should stand on its own feet'

The leader of the Pakistan Movement for Justice has told the BBC that Pakistan should not accept aid from the United States.

In an interview with Radio 5 live's Richard Bacon, former cricketer Imran Khan said the US should trust the country to find a solution to the terrorism situation on its own.

The politician declined that he was 'being naive' and said that bombing tribal villages has only made the situation worse.
