Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has included reputed foreign economists in his newly-set up Economic Advisory Council (EAC) to advise his government and chart a new economic policy for the nation mired in deep financial crisis.

"The criticism of the government helps in resolving issues". He said the government had only taken over days earlier and would take time to deliver.

In this context, the prime minister directed the state minister for interior to coordinate with the chief minister of Balochistan and other stakeholders, including the security forces and ministry of religious affairs, to streamlining the process and ensure provision of maximum facilities to the Zaireen.

Asked on the usage of a helicopter for travel to and from his Bani Gala residence, Khan further said that he did not want the people to be inconvenienced. He further said that the United States is not paying for the expenses incurred on the war against terror.

Imran Khan has also taken notice of the problems faced by the people due to unnecessary hurdles created on the occasion of his arrival in Lahore last night.

Juma Khan Sufi, a writer and political watcher, said that Imran Khan's proposal for negotiations with India had a widespread positive impact in India.

The chief minister said that improvement of government hospitals' emergencies, provision of free medicines and launch of Insaf Health Cards were part of the plan and necessary steps were also being taken to introduce reforms in Punjab Police on the pattern of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa police.

Addressing media at the Prime Minister House here on Friday, Khan was quoted by Samaa TV as saying, "The first year will be hard for Pakistan". "They have been conveyed that any irregularities would not be tolerated now", he said. "We are not facing any undue pressure from any institution". "We will work very hard to implement the 100-day agenda and the fruit of our hard work will soon be visible to people", he said.

He vowed that his government would cancel all agreements made against the interest of the country. "We won't want to fight with the U.S., but ties with Washington need to be on the basis of equality and mutual respect", he added.

Pakistan on Friday expressed its support to Iran on the worldwide nuclear deal related to the Iranian nuclear issue during talks between foreign ministers of the two countries, the Foreign Ministry said.
