Govt to recover wealth looted by Ishaq Dar, says info minister


ISLAMABAD: Federal Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said on Tuesday that government will recover the looted wealth from former finance minister Ishaq Dar.

"Ishaq Dar will return and the money he looted will be recovered. We are more eager for the money than Dar though," said the information minister in a media talk at the Islamabad Chamber of Commerce.

Chaudhry claimed that the politics of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and former president Asif Ali Zardari has come to an end.

"We have attained our political destination now we are going for our desired financial destination," he said.

Chaudhry remarked that the opposition protests whenever the government talks about accountability.

The information minister said that the United States of America expressed its gratitude to Pakistan for facilitating talks with the Afghan Taliban.

"We are normalising our relations with the US. Pakistan's global image is improving, British Airways has resumed its operations. France has changed its travel advisory and Germany is planning to," he added.
