PM Imran Khan will not proceed on any foreign tour in first three months: Report

ISLAMABAD - The Federal cabinet has decided that Prime Minister Imran Khan will not go on on any foreign tours for the next three month "unless there is a pressing matter that needs to be addressed". Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi will represent the country on international platforms.

Chaudhry also announced the government's decision to restrict ministers' foreign trips that are paid for by the national exchequer.

As part of its austerity drive, the government has also decided to restrict the expenditures of ministers. The state will not pay for ministers' medical checkups that are held abroad, Chaudhry said.

Addressing Sharif's claim that he personally bore the Prime Minister House's expenses, Chaudhry said that the building's expenses are part of the national budget.

He further said that if Sharif's claim was true, he should produce his income tax statement.
