Everyone around the world is well aware about the position of Prime Minister in Pakistan and how their Army dominate in the politics of the country.
Generally in Democracies around the world, intelligence agencies simply don’t have the authority to listen the conversation of head of the state.
Yes, intelligence agency do aware the daily itinerary of the Prime Minister or President but they can not have the power to spy their own head of the state, not even for security purpose.
PM Imran Khan also referred as the puppet of the Army and these confessions by him are not surprising.
Mansoor Ali also asked about Pakistan deteriorating relationship with Saudi Arabia.
Imran Khan answered, “Our relations with Saudi Arabia are very good and the impression of Muhammad bin Salman not picking up my telephone is not correct”.
“Yes, UAE has some issues with issuing new Visa and they cancelled Visa for at least 10 Muslim Nations including Pakistan and we are in talks with them”, Prime Minister said on UAE new Visa policy.
