Imran Khan on Trump, Modi, and Why He Won’t Criticize China
An interview with Pakistan’s prime minister.
Imran Khan rode a populist wave to become Pakistan’s prime minister in 2018.

On Jan. 22, he met with Foreign Policy’s editor in chief Jonathan Tepperman at the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland. The following conversation has been edited for brevity and syntax.
