Government of PakistanAgreement with IMF to be in best interests of Pakistan: Miftah

KARACHI, Pakistan: The Federal Minister for Finance Miftah Ismail has expressed the hope that in the next two days he will succeed in having an agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in the best interests of the Country and the people.

Taking to media in Karachi before leaving for Doha for talks with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on Monday, he said that today the nation is paying the price of wrong policies and agreements signed by the government with international monetary organizations.


Miftah Ismail said that tough conditions of withdrawing subsidies and imposing a tax on petroleum products is the result of agreements of the previous government with the IMF.

The finance minister said that per agreements of the previous government, the diesel price is to be increased by Rs 150 per liter and petrol by Rs 100 per liter but the present government does not want to carry it forward as it will result in heavy financial burden on the masses.

Miftah Ismail said that Imran Khan has always created impediments in the path of development of the Country. He said that Imran Khan’s 2014 sit-in caused the postponement of the Chinese president’s visit to Pakistan and today the IMF team that was due in Islamabad for talks has declined to visit because of Imran Khan’s sit-ins.
