Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal stresses converting disappointment into hope after ISPR's presser

Ahsan terms Safdar's hate speech'tragic

Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal has stressed that no difference exist between army and government.

On Wednesday, Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Bajwa had said that Pakistan needed to expand its tax base.

Pakistan's Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal Friday said the Director General (DG) of Army's media wing should refrain from commenting on the country's economic situation.

While referring to World Bank's meeting, the minister urged that he gave his views in an optimistic tone but his words were mistaken.

While criticizing his opponents, he said that they were termed as "most unsafe country" in the past but now they are being regarded as one of the "fastest growing economies".

US President Donald Trump had also praised Pakistani security forces for securing the release of the couple and their three children from Taliban captivity.

The Minister said the country has reversed the tide of terrorism through the valiant efforts of Pakistan's security forces and determination of the entire nation.

Earlier, DG ISPR said while speaking on the issue of national economy on Dunya News programme "Dunya Kamran Khan Kay Sath" that a country's economy is closely linked with its security.

"Growth has picked up but the debts are sky high".

In reply to a query, he said CPEC does not pose any threat to any one and all countries could derive benefits from this mega project. He said under China-Pakistan Economic Power Corridor, private sector has invested 36 billion dollars into the energy sector and it was not loan.

Among other critics, Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Syed Khurshid Shah took Iqbal to task over his statement, saying every citizen has the right to speak about the economy.
