All int'l agreements to be reviewed: Pak PM

  • Asks media to give his govt 3 months before criticising

  • Islamabad backs Tehran over US nuclear deal row



Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday said his government would review all international agreements it inherited from the last Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) government and asked critics to bear with him for three months for performance.

He stated this during a meeting with a select group of news anchorpersons at the Prime Minister House. The issues that came under discussion were the accountability of ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leaders, use of official helicopters by the family of Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar, a verbal clash between Khawar Maneka, ex-husband of the first lady, and Pakpattan District Police Office (DPO) Rizwan Gondal, remarks by Punjab Information Minister Fayyazul Hassan Chohan against a film star, alleged misuse of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government's official chopper by PM Khan, etc.

The PM was quoted as saying: “Give our government three months before criticising its performance.” He claimed that in three months, there would be a marked difference in the way the country was currently run.

Khan also vowed to further strengthen Pakistan-Iran ties during his meeting  with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, who is the first foreign leader to visit him after his inauguration. He expressed unequivocal support for Iran's position on its troubled nuclear deal with the West that has been abandoned by the US and urged the other parties to the agreement to remain committed to it.
