Fawad Chaudhry Addresses the Media
A report from Islamabad states that On Saturday the Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad said that Pakistan was close in interaction with all global and regional powers, on the recent Afghanistan crisis.
In a recording, the minister stated that the people of Afghanistan would form the government by themselves, and Pakistan would stay adamant in its efforts for a harmonious and unwavering Afghanistan.
Fawad accentuated that Pakistan was playing an integral role in peace and stability in Afghanistan. He specified that the Pakistani embassy in Kabul was being commended globally, even in the international media. He said that PIA abetted approximately 1,400 people in their clearing process from Kabul.
He clarified that the ongoing situation in Kabul had made it grim for correspondents, international media, IMF, the World Bank personnel, and staff of many embassies to vacate. Minister further notified that the Pakistan embassy in Kabul had dispensed about 4,000 visas so far, and about 2,000 people have been expatriated from Kabul.
In the interim, Fawad said that the government was all set to introduce rectifications in PMDA draft law, excluding the clauses about the right of media staff to approach media trials to impose the covenant with their corresponding associations and levy forfeits on fabricated news.
He said it was the liability of the residing government to give the meager media workers the right to legal reforms. The minister further stated that in the existing media model of Pakistan, the rights of the common man, poor media workers, and public interests are endangered.
