Islamabad: Minister of State for Finance Aisha Ghaus Pasha Wednesday termed the statement of International Monetary Fund (IMF) mission chief Nathan Porter as interference in Pakistan's internal affairs.
Talking to media in Islamabad, Minister of State for Finance said: “Nathan Porter should not interfere in domestic and political affairs, moreover I do not know what he has stated exactly as nothing has been officially communicated to us”.
Ayesha Ghaus Pasha added that the delay in the loan program is not in the interest of both Pakistan and IMF, adding that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has assured Managing Director (MD) of IMF regarding implementation of conditions and completion of program. It is hoped that a staff level agreement will be reached before the new budget.
“The budget of the new financial year will be an election year budget which is being prepared on the basis of June 9,” continued the minister.
