Imran Khan ropes in foreign experts to rebuild Pakistan's debt-ridden economy

On Kashmir, this is the report that Pakistan will prepare Pakistani PM's first diplomatic move

When we met Imran Khan for the first time in 1986, we never imagined that the swashbuckling Cricketer (who bowled "maidens" over) would turn to politics and would one day become the Prime Minister of one of the most important countries of the world.

Khan said this after meeting Kazuyuki Nakane, State Minister for Foreign Affairs of Japan who called on the prime minister and congratulated him on his election victory.

He stressed the importance of improving mutual relations at regional and global levels, saying the two countries must further strengthen cooperation in the sectors of border security and banking as well as cooperation between Iranian and Pakistani ports of Chabahar and Gwadar.

Earlier, the Japanese minister also held talks with Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and expressed his desire to further strengthen bilateral relations between Pakistan and Japan. The two sides issued divergent statements after the telephonic conversation.

General Dunford said the USA would maintain both diplomatic and security presence in South Asia and this was going to change over time. However, the Foreign Office spokesperson said Pakistan had made a decision to move on after the State Department reportedly shared a transcript of the telephonic conversation with Pakistan.




He emphasized that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has repeatedly verified that Iran had strictly adhered to the terms of the JCPOA and said Pakistan stands with Iran in this hour of need.

Addressing media at the Prime Minister House here on Friday, Khan was quoted by Samaa TV as saying, "The first year will be hard for Pakistan". He said he wants to work to implement the Security Council resolutions. They reiterated their determination for lasting peace and stability in the country.

Zarif also emphasized that the two neighboring countries of Iran and Pakistan should boost cooperation to counter any plot aimed at spreading Islamophobia.

The sides discussed expansion of relations in various areas and highlighted the necessity of close cooperation among the Islamic countries.
