Pakistan Prime Minister Imram Khan said on Friday he accepted a verdict from the country's Supreme Court, that ordered parliament proceed with a no-confidence vote against him.

Khan said in an address to the nation he was disappointed but ultimately accepted the decision of the court, after he blocked the vote and dissolved parliament last week.

The court ruled that unconstitutional on Thursday, ordering parliament to reconvene on Saturday.

Pakistan PM Imran Khan in his address to the nation ahead of the no-trust vote said, "I am upset with the Supreme Court's decision. I was upset because when the Dy Speaker conducted the probe, the SC should have investigated it."
