Govt closely monitoring coronavirus spread: Qureshi

Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that government is closely monitoring coronavirus spread at National and International level.

He was addressing a meeting to assess the steps taken for the control of Corona Pandemic and Insaf Relief Package at Multan on Tuesday. 

He said that Prime Minister has constituted two sub committees and established a cell to assess the situation regarding coronavirus.  The Foreign Minister said that government intends to reschedule its loan from IMF, World Bank and Asian Development Bank. 

He maintained that we are in contact with the foreign ministers of European Union, G-77, and G-22 countries. 

Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Pakistan is playing its positive role for the removal of sanctions on Iran as Iran is unable to even purchase ventilators besides having resources.
