Responding to queries about the crackdown on political activists and journalists following the May 9 protests, Miller expressed concern and called for the equal application of these principles. He acknowledged the mass arrests and registration of cases, including those under terrorism laws, against members of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party, following the violent turn of events during the protests and the subsequent arrest of party leader and former prime minister, Imran Khan.

While closely monitoring the situation in Pakistan, the State Department spokesperson clarified that the US does not endorse any specific political candidate and remains neutral in that regard.

Additionally, Miller conveyed condolences and expressed regret over the tragic terrorist attack on the gas field in Hangu, extending sympathies to the grieving families affected by the incident.
