The federal government has denied giving out information about the exchange of gifts between Prime Minister Imran Khan and other heads of state, following a citizen’s petition against the matter.

Journalist Aamir Saeed Abbasi, shared a picture of a notice on Twitter in which the government has termed the gifts as ‘classified’.

In the notice, it is mentioned that the matter is reflective of inter-state relations and the disclosure of such information potentially damages the interest of Pakistan in the context of international relations.


However, sources told The Current that there is nothing that’s deliberately being hidden. They said that some countries do not like disclosing their gifts so they are marked ‘classified’.

According to them, a list may soon be provided of gifts without the mention of countries’ names.

The government also challenged the petitioner in Islamabad High Court (IHC).
