LAHORE: After Prime Minister’s (PM) strategic visit to Russia, Fawad Chaudhry revealed on Saturday that PM Imran Khan would soon embark on a Europe tour.
Addressing a conference in Lahore with Federal Minister for Education Shafqat Mehmood Chaudhry, Fawad said that Pakistan’s position on the Ukraine-Russia crisis is clear, “we prefer de-escalation and diplomacy over military solutions.”
The tour holds special importance amid ongoing differences between the two sides following the statement of European Union envoy’s on Pakistan’s stance on the Ukraine war.
Terming it against ‘diplomatic norms’, Foreign Office Spokesperson Asim Iftikhar said the harsh stance against Pakistan was not appropriate.
Earlier this week, the envoys of 22 countries, including EU member states, had jointly called on Pakistan to support a resolution in the UNGA condemning Russia’s invasion Ukraine.
On the other hand, in relation to the Opposition’s ‘no-confidence’ motion against PM Imran Khan, Fawad claimed that “low confidence is visible on the Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman.
According to the minister, the Opposition will soon be humiliated and will have “nowhere to hide their faces.”
He further went on to say that no-confidence appears to be the Opposition’s lost child, and that “their confidence level is down,” adding that Fazl’s face “reveals everything.”
The minister highlighted that 72 hours have passed while the Oppostion on Wednesday said that a no-confidence motion will be presented in 48 hours.
Speaking about “Awami March”, he said: “PTI is ready to welcome Bilawal Bhutto’s long march to Rawalpindi. However, it would be better if they came after the ongoing Pakistan-Australia test series, as international cricket has been revived in the country after a long hiatus.”
The information minister said that the PPP had split into three factions, while the PML-N was busy saving-money.
