Imran calls for unity to make Pak great nation

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief and prime minister-in-waiting Imran Khan has stressed the need for unity to confront challenges faced by the country.
In his message on the occasion of the 71st anniversary of Independence from British rule, Khan said: “14 Aug 2018: On this Independence Day I am filled with the greatest optimism. Despite our grave economic crises, due to corruption & cronyism, I know if we are united in our resolve, we will rise to the challenge & Pak will become the great nation envisaged by our Quaid & Iqbal.”
Sharing a picture from Round Table Conferences held between 1930-32 in London, he siad: “In this historic picture of Quaid-i-Azam & Iqbal, at the Round Table Conference in London 1932, my khalu Dr Jehangir Khan and my mother’s chacha Zaman Khan (Zaman Park named after him) were also present.
Meanwhile, Prime minister-in-waiting Imran Khan on Tuesday voiced support for Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and the people of Turkey in successfully tackling economic challenges facing the country.
In a tweet, the PTI chief said the people of Pakistan are praying for Turkey’s success in dealing with severe economic challenges confronting it.
He said: “On behalf of the people of Pakistan & myself, I want to let President Erdogan & the people of Turkey know we are praying for their success in dealing with the severe economic challenges confronting them, as they have always succeeded against adversities in their glorious history.”
The Turkish lira pulled back on Tuesday from a record low hit a day earlier, helped by the central bank’s liquidity measures and news of a planned conference call in which the finance minister will seek to reassure investors, according to a report.
The lira which closed at 6.9 per dollar on Monday, has weakened 45 percent this year, hit by worries over President Tayyip Erdogan’s calls for lower interest rates and worsening ties with the United States. – NNI
