Ishaq Dar, Pakistan’s finance minister, hinted at the possibility of buying Russian oil, at the Same Rate India is Purchasing.
Dar hoped that the West wouldn’t object to the import of Russian oil at a reduced price due to Pakistan’s financial suffering brought on by the most recent disastrous floods when responding to a question in Washington.
Regarding the duration of the current administration, the finance minister claimed that the Center coalition government has enough time to enter politics.
“10 months are enough for the government to rebuild its political standing and win popularity,” he responded to a query regarding politics.
To a question about US President Biden’s statement on Pakistan’s nuclear program, he said Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif had already said that a robust command and control system was in place in the country. The US authorities also acknowledge it often, he added.
On the recent Financial Action Task Force’s (FATF) recent meeting, Dar is optimistic that Pakistan would get out of the watchdog’s grey list. A meeting is expected in a few days and the government is hopeful that the country would come out of the FATF grey list, he said.
