MULTAN: Pakistan FM Shah Mehmood Qureshi breaks silence over reports of being desirous of becoming Prime minister.
Minister for Foreign Affairs Shah Mahmood Qureshi says Imran Khan is the prime minister of the country and he (Qureshi) is not willing to become the prime minister.
“The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) and the allied parties agree with him (Mr Khan) being the prime minister. I am not a candidate for the premiership and I have no such desire,” he stated while replying to a question of the media persons here on Friday.
The minister said the protest by the opposition would create chaos which would damage the country and hamper democracy.
“Inflation in the country is the continuity transferred by the previous governments. If the opposition thinks that its protest could help harness dearness, it should hold protest. But if there are protests in the country, how will the investment take place? The protest is even not in favour of the opposition as well,” Mr Qureshi said.
He said the opposition should avoid taking such steps as would damage the country.
