Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday admitted that Iran has suffered from terrorism by “groups operating from within Pakistan” and expressed his resolve to not allow militants to use Pakistani soil anymore.
“I know that Iran has suffered from terrorism which is from groups operated from within Pakistan,” the premier said while addressing a press conference along with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in Tehran.
While he asserted that Islamabad would no longer allow any militant groups to use its soil against anyone, PM Imran’s statement regarding terrorism in Iran is receiving mixed reactions on Twitter:
Peace is breaking out on Iran’s eastern front as PM Imran landed in Tehran on Sunday to strengthen trust between the two neighbouring countries on the invitation of President Rouhani.
According to reports, border security issues are on top of the premier’s agenda in Tehran as Pak-Iran relations have lately had a bad patch due to security issues along the border.
Federal Minister for Science & Technology Fawad Chaudhry
has revealed that he was earning way more as a television anchor and by practicing
law in the past than at present as a minister.
“A minister’s salary is Rs345,000, out of which the house rent is Rs90,000. We are paid Rs255,000 after that,” he tweeted while replying to a person who had asked him his salary amid massive budget cuts by the government.
His salary at present is way less than the one he received as a television anchor for a private media outlet, as a known fact is how stalwarts like Fawad earn in millions while hosting shows.
The same has been confessed by Fawad himself earlier. Speaking to a private media outlet in October 2018, he had said his income as a minister is way less than what he was getting as an anchor.
When asked if he has any regrets after assuming office as a
minister now that he doesn’t get any time to perform other duties, Fawad had said,
“It is true that we have hefty engagements as ministers but our salaries are
also very low.”
