Video: Pak PM Imran Khan breaks diplomatic protocol at SCO summit, remains brazenly seated while welcoming other leaders

Pakistan Prime Minister does it again!

The diplomatic etiquettes of Imran Khan, the parody Prime Minister of the terror state of Pakistan, is being questioned after he broke the diplomatic protocol once again at the opening ceremony of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Summit held in Kyrgyzstan’s capital Bishkek on Thursday.

In a video released by Imran Khan’s political party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) of the opening ceremony of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) Summit in Bishkek Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan PM Imran Khan can be seen lost in his own world as he brazenly took his seat while the other world leaders are still entering the hall one after the other.

While the entire hall was still standing to applaud for the various heads of state, Pakistan PM Imran Khan, who seems to be unaware of diplomatic protocols chose to sit and relax in his seat. Upon realizing that he was perhaps the only one seated, he stood for a brief moment but slipped into his seat again.

This is not the first time that Imran Khan embarrassed himself and his country Pakistan. Back on June 3, Imran Khan had received flak from his own countrymen after failing to adhere to diplomatic ethics and allegedly disrespecting King Salman.

Imran Khan had met Saudi King Salman at Arab nation’s OIC Summit at Mecca in Saudi Arabia, during which Khan was received by King Salman bin Abdulaziz himself on arrival at the summit. However, Imran Khan said something to King Salman and before the interpreter could interpret it for the King and he could react, Khan had casually walked off.

Earlier, in February this year, Imran Khan had also broken protocol in front of Saudi Arabian crown prince Mohammed-bin-Salman during a state-organised lunch. However, a visibly hungry Imran Khan, much like his country, began to have his lunch at the table even before the presidential address.

Shanghai Cooperation Organisation is a permanent intergovernmental international organisation. It’s a Eurasian political, economic and military organisation aiming to maintain peace, security and stability in the region. The members of the SCO are Kazakhstan, China, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, India and Pakistan.
