US newspaper includes PM Imran Khan on its list of Nobel Peace Prize NEW YORK: A renowned United States newspaper has included Prime Minister Imran Khan on its “starting list” of world leaders to win this year’s Nobel Peace Prize. The paper cited Premier Khan’s leadership skills in de-escalating the recent tensions between India and Pakistan, as a reason behind him deserving a Nobel Peace Prize. “Perhaps the biggest surprise in peaceful leadership – and most critical to the world – is Imran Khan,” the newspaper noted. It added: “After a February 14 attack that killed at least 40 Indian soldiers in occupied Kashmir, India launched its first airstrike inside Pakistan since a 1971 war. The two nuclear-capable states were primed for all-out conflict.” Read more: Resolution submitted in NA demanding PM Imran be awarded Nobel Peace Prize However, PM Khan offered talks to Indian government to cool down the hostility and returned the captured pilot of Indian Air Force, Abhinandan, as well as a peace gesture. Besides Imran Khan, The Christian Science Monitor has listed South Korean President Moon Jae-in for opening a door to North Korea and seeking a peaceful engagement aimed at de-nuclearising the Korean peninsula; Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed for signing a peace pact with Eritrea and freeing political prisoners, and Venezuela’s opposition leader Juan Guaido, who became interim president with the support of the National Assembly to bring about peaceful change in the Latin American country.   The post US newspaper includes PM Imran Khan on its list of Nobel Peace Prize appeared first on ARYNEWS.
