Govt releases funds for Umer Sharif's treatment: Murtaza Wahab
The government will leave no stone unturned to facilitate the legend, Murtaza Wahab said.
He said issues related to visas will be resolved soon.
Murtaza's statement comes a day after Umer's wife Zareen Ghazal said the family was waiting for the visas.
A report cited the son of Umer as saying he cannot provide a timeframe.
A Pakistani cardiologist, who is the husband of actor Reema Khan, will treat Umer Sharif at George Washington University Hospital in the US.
In a video message last week, the veteran comedian requested the government to help him get treated abroad.
The federal government announced it formed a medical board to decide if the actor should be sent abroad or not.
