  • PM Imran visits GHQ accompanying cabinet members

Prime Minister Khan has asked the committee to give its recommendations in two weeks for possible steps to be taken for expedient return of unlawfully acquired assets from overseas.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says Pakistan is an "important" neighboring country to Iran, stressing that no third country can negatively affect relations between the two countries.

The multilateral deal on the Iranian nuclear issue was struck between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany and the European Union, and was adopted by the UN Security Council Resolution 2,231. Media is free to criticize all policies and measures the new government takes, he said, adding that it in fact helps government resolve issues.

The prime minister was accompanied by Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mahmood Khan, Adviser to the PM on Climate Change Malik Amin Aslam, Special Assistant to the PM on Political Affairs Naeemul Haq, and officials from the forest department.


US-Pakistan tensions have flared before Mr Pompeo's trip with Islamabad dismissing as "incorrect" reports the US has cancelled United States dollars 300 million in military aid to the country, saying Washington owed the money to Islamabad for expenses incurred on fighting terrorism. "Three months down the road, there will be a marked difference in the way the country is run", he promised.

Meanwhile, former Senate chairman Raza Rabbani has said that Mr Khan should not meet Mr Pompeo during his visit and the country's foreign minister should instead meet his USA counterpart. He said the maintenance charges and pilot fees for the helicopter would be paid regardless of whether or not he used it, adding that there were significant threats to his life that had forced him to move out of Bani Gala. He also said that none of his cabinet members had been appointed "permanently" and could be removed from office or shuffled around based on their performance. "Ultimately, everything is related to economy, even foreign policy", he said. If you step forward one step, we will take two steps forward.

During the visit, Sidhu sparked controversy after he was photographed hugged Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa. "We are not facing any undue pressure from any institution".

During the marathon session, the prime minister turned down French President Emmanuel Macron's call twice.
